Firebird Flash installation problems

I can't seem to install flash for Firebird. I followed all the directions regarding download and install, but I still cannot view pages with Flash. Has anyone else had the problem and been able to correct it? Thanks.

I have it working in Firebird 0.6.1. I installed the latest flash in mozilla, then I copied the files from Mozilla's plugins directory over to Firebird's plugins directory. I copied and flashplayer.xpt, then restarted Firebird and checked it by going to The animation works.

copying the .so and .xpt does not enable the plugins for me, in mozilla or M firebird, they are installed to home/me/.mozilla and i copy them to the plugins folder of both browsers, the browsers are installed in my home dir.
