Problem while installing Adobe flash player.

Then I downloaded install_flash_player_10_linux.tar.gz file, exctracted, and copied file to /usr/lib/, restarted browser and again it is giving me the same msg of installing missing plugins.

Please anyone help me.

These are the install instructions from Adobe for the .tar.gz file.

Installation instructions for tar.gz

1. Click the download link to begin installation. A dialog box will appear asking you where to save the file.
2. Save the .tar.gz file to your desktop and wait for the file to download completely.
3. Unpackage the file.
4. Copy the file to the plugins folder of your browser. Refer to your browser vendor for the location of this folder.
5. To verify the plug-in is installed in your Mozilla browser, launch Mozilla and choose Help > About Plug-ins from the browser menu.
You do not put in /usr/lib. Step 4 states it goes in the plugins directory for each web browser you have installed. The browser is not finding flashplayer.
