Hi Ray,

Ubuntu installs the flash plugin .so file to
/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/.  But you want it in the plugins directory
of your manual install of Firefox, wherever you put it.

If you installed firefox in /opt/firefox, you would enable flash by
typing this in a terminal:

    sudo cp /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/flashplugin*.so /opt/firefox/plugins

Then restart your browser, and it should work.

stand like dwarfs on the shoulders of giants.' The image was a
commonplace by the time Newton used it, his one contribution being to
erase any sense that he himself might be a dwarf."
