flashplayer 10 not recognized by firefox-1.5.06.uci on dsl -- i copied the .so file

soo tired of this. anyway anybody know what the hell is up? these .uci applications, it says when i download, just copy any plugins into the designated 'firefox-plugins' folder. so i do that with the flashplayer file and nothing. nada. ever ever ever. it's so tiresome. all i'm trying to do is upload one frickin song to myspace. and it's impossible? give me a break.

See where Firefox's is stored using find, and put your plugin there. I've seen /usr/lib/mozilla/plguins, what laitcg said, /usr/lib/mozilla-firefox/plugins... and your home dir, like ~/.mozilla/firefox/plugins and similar.

I just installed flash (from Adobe's web site) on Firefox 3.0 and it really is that easy. I don't know for sure why it isn't working for you the same - but my first guess would be that you are using a very old Firefox... Plugins often don't work across different releases.

those are all really helpful. i have tried updating firefox to 3.0, but that's not working. i think i should start with my dsl distro, and get that updated first ... duh. well, i was frustrated about it, but i'm working around it. thanks for the helpful suggestions, i really appreciate it.
