I agree with Andrew. Definitely get rid of all but one of the flash plugins.
As to where to put it, you say you put it in "/.mozilla/firefox" I assume
you mean ~/.mozilla/firefox (where ~ means your home directory). This will
not work on my system (I've tried it) and I put mine here:
~/.mozilla/plugins/. Note that this is not system-wide and will apply only
to the user whose home directory the plugin is in.
