Cannot FInd Installed Flash Player

I downloaded and installed an Adobe Flash Player and I cannot locate the setup program for the installed file. And it does NOT automatically run if requested by a web page. I think I need to OK the license agreement. But I can't find it. Any ideas?

I am using:
Fedora Release 11 (Leonidas) Kernel Linux
GNOME 2.26.2
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.9.1) Gecko/20090630 Fedora/3.5-1.fc11 Firefox/3.5
Wine 1.123
Installation instructions for .rpm

Is there a package for mozilla plugins? A package such as flashplayer-mozilla or flashplugin-nonfree? This might be needed to get flash working in Firefox (or Epiphany or whatever browser you're using). If you find such a plugin package, install it and see if you can view flash on the Internet.

To see if you have a flash plugin is installed, check under the Tools menu item, under Add-ons, and then Plug-ins, to see (I'm assuming you're using Firefox).

I have a similar problem. I have just loaded Firefox 3.5 into SUSE 11.1, downloaded the latest Flash via Firebox’s add-ons and although it works in stand alone viewers it doesn’t work in Firefox . It does not appear in the list of add-ons so I am wondering if there is a link between Flash and Firefox missing. I haven’t this problem on my Acer but the only other guy in my office who uses SUSE does. I have noticed in the past that SUSE puts files in odd places I wonder if this is yet another case. Any assistance will be welcome.

Look in /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins or /usr/lib/firefox/plugins At least one of these needs to have "" or a link to it. Use find to see where is and set a link as required.
