Adobe flashplugin 64-bit

I have downloaded the 64-bit version of the flashplugin provided by
Adobe and have removed nspluginwrapper from my system and all versions
of libflashplayer.so I could find.

To test I started Firefox and about:plugins showed no flashplugin.

I then copied libflashplayer.so from the downloaded tar-file to
~/.mozilla/plugins and restarted firefox.  Now about:plugins shows
that it is activated (Afrikaans here.  "Geaktiveer" means "Activated"
and Ja = Yes). 

    Lêernaam: libflashplayer.so
    Shockwave Flash 10.0 d20

MIME-soort			Beskrywing		Lêeruitgange	Geaktiveer
application/x-shockwave-flash 	Shockwave Flash		swf		Ja
application/futuresplash 	FutureSplash Player 	spl 		Ja

But when I try out something like http://www.themeatrix.com or youtube.com it
is clearly not working.

What am I missing?

Regards
Johann
