Why don't you use the flashplugin installer?
From the readme

This package will download the Flash Player from the net. It is a Netscape/Mozilla type plugin. Any browser based on Netscape or Mozilla can use the Flash plugin. This package currently supports the following browsers: Mozilla, Mozilla-Firefox, Firefox, Iceweasel, and Iceape. Also Galeon and Epiphany can use the Flash plugin. Konqueror can also use the Flash plugin if konqueror-nsplugins is installed.

WARNING: Installing this Ubuntu package causes the Adobe flash plugin to be downloaded from The distribution license of the Adobe flash plugin is available at Installing this Ubuntu package implies that you have accepted the terms of that license.
