[Solved]How can I get Firefox 17 to work with flashplayer-plugin?

I came to #! from Ubuntu, where everything is nice and easy, so I am really in need of help.

I can install the Firefox from the Mint repositories, which works with the flashplayer-plugin, but it's version 14.
I tried installing Firefox from Mozilla's, but then I don't know the the plug-in folder is.

The things work well independently but I can't get them to work together.

Is there a magical way to make the plugin work with Firefox installed from Mozilla?

Place the plugin in

/home/your user name/.mozilla/plugins

If the plugin directory is not there, create it.

Would the be the plugin from adobe? Because that didn't work.

I have "usr" and "libflashplayer.so" in ./.mozilla/plugins, and I have restarted Firefox after doing that.

Thanks for the fast reply.

Have you got the Firefox 17 from the Mozilla website?
Could you run me through your installation process?

I'm running Firefox from my Home folder, and I think it's the same .mozilla I had for Iceweasel (I have the same tabs).

I use iceweasel.  Both FF and iceweasel use the same folder.

I just download the libflashplayer.so and place it in /home/your user name/.mozilla/plugins and restart iceweasel.

You can go to about:plugins from the url bar in FF to see if it is there.

You can also go to Tools/Addons/Plugins and disable any if you have multiple ones loaded.

If you have added the non-free repo to your Debian install to be able to install the Flash package this way and it will always update

sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree

This is what I have in /etc/apt/sources.list  for debian multimedia

deb http://www.deb-multimedia.org sid main non-free

If you are running stable replace sid with stable.  If you are running testing replace sid with testing.

Thanks for all the help, but it's still not working. I'll try my luck on that thread.

EDIT: Fixed it (see post #25 on that thread)
