Take a look in /usr/lib/firefox/plugins and see what's there.  There may 
be a sym link to Flash 7 (especially if you upgraded a distro that 
already had it installed).  Remove that sym link (or .so file), and all 
should be well.  You can then install the latest version, and it should 
be the only one recognized.

Hope that helps...
