LoadPlugin: failed to initialize shared library /var/lib/flashplugin-installer/npwrapper.libflashplayer.so wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS64], Firefox from Mozilla, not KUbuntu ; jor ubuntu

Firefox 3.6.8 downloaded directly from mozilla, not from the KUbuntu FF
package.
On KUbuntu 10.6 64bit OS, on an AMD Phenom II 4 core 64 bit processor.

Originally, I had the KUbuntu Firefox package installed, but removed  
(something like "apt-get purge firefox")   it & installed the direct
from Mozilla Firefox package because that has debug info ability, but
the KUbuntu version didn't - so I was told, in the firefox-users mailing
list, IIRC.

I am running firefox from the console command:
"./firefox -no-remote"

Using no-remote so a separate instance of ff starts, so if there is a
crash, the other instance windows won't crash.

Strangely, earlier today, when I was using only one instance of FF, the
"default" instance, with about 20 ff windows open, I was able to get the
streaming video using flash to play properly.  It is only since i
started running the 2nd instance that it will no longer play.

I had to re-download my FF extra plugins the first time the no-remote ff
version started: noscript, flashblock, adblock, ghostery.

=
Is there a 32 bit / 64 bit problem here?

This error message comes up when I try to enable a flash plugin, which
is to play a streaming video.

The "play" button appears, but when I click on it, instead of the
streaming video window appearing, instead it is an empty black window in
that area of the web page.

=
Any ideas what the problem is, & a fix?
