I have installed a ubuntu 11.04 and by default it has firefox 4.0 on it.
while I was using firefox 4 All was going OK and flashplayer was working on it, But now I chose to use firefox 8!
I downloaded it with tar.gz format and extract in my home folder.
All was OK until I saw flash player is not working on it, so I downloaded the latest version of flash player and it was 11.
The package was tar.bz2, so I extract it and copy the libflashplayer.so in:
Honestly, you went overboard by copying the libflashplayer.so file in many places like you did. Are you running the 32 bit verion of Ubuntu, or 62 bit? Also, read the following link, as it has instructions on how to install flash in Ubuntu - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Re...dFormats/Flash
I am using 64-bit version and I have installed flash player for firefox 4, using terminal and software manager and even synaptic but I have trouble in firefox 8.
I think the problem is that firefox is extracted in home folder(not in /usr/lib/) and it can not use flash by some reason.
Do you mean installed? Why would you install it in your home folder? This would definitely cause this issue. I recommend you uninstall firefox completely, and install it normally to /usr/bin, /usr/lib, etc.
