Default Firefox & Flash 10

Hi all,

I'm trying to get Flash (10.1.82.76) installed (and working) on
Firefox (3.6.8). I installed adobe-flash and, for good measure,
libflash and libflashsupport:

media-libs/libflash-0.4.10-r1
www-plugins/libflashsupport-1.2 USE="esd gnutls oss pulseaudio -ssl"
www-plugins/adobe-flash-10.1.82.76-r1 USE="(-multilib) (-nspluginwrapper)"

When I go to the Adobe test page
(http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/) it says: "You have
version 9,0,115,0 installed". (After closing Firefox and even a full
reboot.)

I uninstalled adobe-flash and checked again: still "You have version
9,0,115,0 installed". So it looks like just emerge-ing adobe-flash is
not enough? Do I need to configure something? Install something else?
Remove something?

Cheers,
Hilco

Thanks for the info.

I killed all Firefox instances that were running. I then uninstalled
firefox and replaced it with firefox-bin (3.6.8). Next I uninstalled
libflash and libflashsupport. Finally, just to be safe, I reinstalled
adobe-flash.

The result is exactly the same. Adobe says I have 9,0,115,0 installed.

It seems like you have installed it locally. To find out where it is,
execute this (as normal user):


lsof | grep flash

Firefox must be running and flash loaded (opening a YouTube video should
do it.)


On my system, lsof finds that my Firefox is using:

/opt/Adobe/flash-player32/libflashplayer.so

which is the latest 10.x version.

Did you erased
~/.mozilla directory?



Calm down first, but think thirst in "mv .mozilla MOZILLA-BCK",
then try use firefox again.

Brilliant! That was the problem. I don't remember installing it
locally but, after removing the Flash library from .mozilla/plugins,
Adobe now tells me it sees 10,1,82,76.

:-) I'm quite calm. :-) I didn't erase the whole directory just the
lib for the plugin in .mozilla/plugins. That did the trick.

Note that Firefox now also has a "plugins" tab in "Tools->Add-ons" where
you can see the version of each plugin.
