I managed to get it working this evening by following the instructions 
at http://www.mjmwired.net/resources/mjm-fedora-f8.html#flash (following 
the 64-bit instructions).

I think the missing ingredient was "mozilla-plugin-config -i -g -v" 
because as soon as I did that, about:plugins showed all kinds of goodies 
(but not shockwave).  To get THAT, I had to remove flash and install it 
again.  Bingo.

Thanks everyone for your help on this.

I thought I was wrong once, but I was mistaken.
