Binary package hint: apt

Daily build of hardy-desktop-i386 April 8 running on Wubi rev 479.
In Mozilla Firefox 3 Beta 5 the flash plug-in does not install correctly - neither when using the package manager nor when installing through the browser..  Even though the installation process appears to run smoothly and complete successfully - when you encounter a flash object the browser shows "click to install missing plug-in" - and when you proceed you are told that the plug-in is installed.
By fetching the plug-in myself as a tar.gz file I managed to install the plug-in correctly when I indicated the Mozilla installation directory as /usr/lib/firefox-3.0b5.
The apt version is indicated as synaptic 0.61Ubuntu8.
