[Bug 611301] Re: apparmor denies firefox access to /etc/alternatives/mozilla-flashplugin

/etc/alternatives/mozilla-flashplugin should be a symlink to something
(eg /var/lib/flashplugin-installer/npwrapper.libflashplayer.so) and not
an actual file. AppArmor will effectively 'realpath' a symlink so
/etc/alternatives/mozilla-flashplugin should not need to be added to the
profile, but rather what it is pointing to.

Simon, can you determine why /etc/alternatives/mozilla-flashplugin is
not a symlink on your system? A start might be to perform: dpkg -S
