Using Firefox 3.0.17. about:plugins shows 

    File name: libflashplayer.so
    Shockwave Flash 9.0 r260

However, default plugin shows 

    File name: libnullplugin.so
    The default plugin handles plugin data for mimetypes and extensions
that are not specified and facilitates downloading of new plugins.

It also shows this as not enabled.

I wonder if this is the reason version 10.0.42.34 doesn't show up?
