Wow! Working great!  Here's the deal as I see it. You got that tarball,
right? Had a README and the lib file and that was it, right? 
Copy it into both /usr/lib/mozilla-X.X.X/plugins
and /usr/lib/firefox-X.X.X/plugins

I found several versions of both mozilla and firefox, I rm -rf'd the old
ones. I tried rpm -e but that didn't work. 

But, before you do all of that. 
cd into your /usr/lib/mozilla-X.X.X/ plugins directory and do ls -la 
to see if those are files to be replaced or links. In my setup they were
libflashplayer.so -> /usr/lib/flash-plugin/libflashplayer.so
So I only needed to replace that file and it is seen by both firefox and
mozilla via their links, but not ~/.mozilla/plugins where I found a file
to be replaced. I made a link there too. Not sure if I used the
"approved" FC rpm for them or not. <smirks> YMMV, Ric
