Ubuntu 8.04.1 amd64 - fresh install with updates

When firefox encounters a page which uses flash, it displays that plugin
frame, which upon clicking triggers the plugin installation.

But after the plugin is installed, the page still show that frame. Even after reloading the page.
Clicking it opens again the plugin installation wizard, but this time it says, that the flash plugin is already installed.

It only works after closing and restarting firefox.

 - the plugin should work without restart
 - the install wizard should inform the user that the change will be effective only after closing and restaring firefox
