Hi Folks

I am using Linux Mandrive 2007.

I have been trying to install Adobe Flash Player 9. I have download the unzipped file from Adobe website and followed the steps shows on the website.

But at one stage of installation, it is asking me the instllation path for web browser such as FireFox. I haven't got any clue regardig this and Adobe website hasn't got any kind of information regarding this.

I am stuck at this and I don't know what to do.

So If you guys can come up with something then please do reply this thread.

I would appriciate your help.

Thanks very much.

It's usually found in /usr/lib/firefox

If you look under /usr/lib you'll find it.
