Mozilla 1.4 won't recognise flash plugin

Basically, the problem is in the title. I recently installed the Linux flash plugin for mozilla. However, on the installation it didn't recognise the directory /usr/lib/mozilla, so I installed the plugin in /usr/lib/mozilla-1.4 (what I think is the directory of the version of mozilla I use, the default version from the mandrake 9.2 ISOs).

So it's installed properly, and even turns up in the About > Plugins menu. However, Mozill astill can't play flash files for some reason, which is a pain. Does anyone know how to get Mozilla to recognise and use the plugin? Thanks.
