Yes is did.   But I'm sure I'll need to run it again.  But to be
honest I'm not _exactly_ sure what it's doing  (Buyer beware Jim, but
I hope it helps if you run it. ).     I forgot to mention that until I
ran the script it didn't matter which version of flash I ran.

I can't really say. Now that I ran the script it doesn't happen, I'll
have to wait until it happens again to answer.

Not sure where you're coming from, did you look at my pdf?  It's this
first one listed.

Shockwave Flash
   File name: libflashplayer.so
   Shockwave Flash 10.0 r12



> your /usr/lib/FF3.0.4/plugins

This doesn't exist.   I know you are abbreviating.   There is not a
plugins directory but there is a searchplugins  but this has xml files
and not actual plugins.  Granted, I am still on 3.0.1 so I'll update
now.   /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so is a symlink to
/usr/lib/flash-plugin/libflashplayer.so.

Thanks,
Peter
