For some reason Flash won't work for me. This is what happens, but firefox won't load the plugin.

Please enter the installation path of the Mozilla, Netscape,
or Opera browser (i.e., /usr/lib/mozilla): /usr/lib/firefox-3.0.5/

Look in there to see if there is a flash plugin.

ls -la /usr/lib/firefox-3.0.5/plugins
And don't forget to restart firefox.

It's in the folder and I copied the plugin to pretty much every folder with the name mozilla or firefox. I'll try restarting my computer since I haven't done that since I installed it.

Copy it to /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins if you want since I believe all the web browsers will look in there for plugins.

libflashplayer.so is in that folder but it still doesn't work.
