This is a duplicate of another bug already filed on LP. The reason it is
happening is because you are trying to use flash's plugin finder not
ours. We are working on getting ours to trump Adobe's but we are not
sure of Mozilla's stand on it nor Adobe's

I will look to see if i can find the orig. report.

The one you found that you thought was same its not.
