I've been trying to upgrade flashplayer for Firefox for a while, and have had little success. At first I tried running the installer as a normal user, which partially worked: flash 9.0 appeared in Firefox's about
lugins summary, but whenever I visited a page that required flash, Firefox always used the version that came pre-installed with SuSE 10.2 (7.something).
I'm now trying to install flash as root, and have discovered that doing so gives me a different set of setup messages altogether: I'm now being asked for the "installation path" for Firefox. I've looked through most of /usr, however, and haven't been able to find it.
Does anyone have any idea what this path is, or any other suggestions as to what I might do to get Firefox to recognize the newer version of flash?
