Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: firefox-3.0

I have tried every way from Sunday to get the Adobe flash player add-on
to install in Firefox 3.0.

I have tried letting the web page install it, completes fine with no
errors but the add-on is not installed.  I downloaded the file in the
tar format, unpacked it and tried installing 'flasherplayer-installer'
and that will not work.

I tried installing the downloaded packages from inside firefox [with no
errors] and it still won't install.

It seems every site I go to asks for the damn player and I'm pulling my

Any suggestions or am I reporting this to the wrong people or in the
wrong place.

Thank you in advance for you assistance in this matter. Hope you can
