Well that's interesting. I don't have it in /usr/lib/firefox. There are 
only a bunch of mplayer libs in there.

I don't remember but apparently I must have installed my own copy of 
firefox at one time.

Besides the one in /opt and the one in my download directory, why would 
I have so many flash libs? Any idea how I would safely clean up the mess 
below? Or should I just copy the right library into all these 
directories including the one you mentioned? I'm sure that would work, 
but it seems a bit sloppy.

$ sudo updatedb
$ locate libflashplayer.so
