Flash 7 problems with Firefox 1.5

I got all the files installed in the right directory, yet it still won't work. What's going on?

It also seems like it works with some sites but not others. (, which requires Flash works, but doesn't)

root:/usr/lib/firefox-0.10.1/plugins/> l
total 2084

What's the "right directory"? You are looking at the directory for Firefox 0.10.1. But you are trying to use Firefox 1.5. It's usually best to put plugins in /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/
