$ ls -l ~/.mozilla/plugins
total 6892
-rw-r--r-- 1 simon simon     856 2008-05-10 04:27 flashplayer.xpt

... that is my working configuration. Installed from firefox - click on the non-rendering player and then select "install plugin". Also does this with the apt-get method. No idea what you are doing to get different files.

To be non-ambiguous - reproduce the above command then paste the command, together with the output, like I did. Bear in mind that that first $ sign is the prompt. The command is:

ls -l ~/.mozilla/plugins

Ah, my bad, I didn't realize you were running 64-bit Ubuntu. Then the link I posted should instead be:

I can guarantee that this WILL now work.
