I have installed LightSpark Flash Player alternative from what is called the official PPA: https://launchpad.net/~sparkers/+archive/ppa (I mean, I added this repository and then sudo apt-get install lightspark).

But Firefox doesn't feel it. It looks exacly like when I hadn't installed LightSpark. In "Firefox -> Addons -> Plugins" there is no new entry.

What should I do to really use Lightspark after installing it?

Nope, the lightspark plugin does NOT work in Firefox on Ubuntu, at least not on Facebook flash apps. I now use the chromium-browser to play poker on FB. –  user155902 Jun 27 '13 at 18:03

To install lightspark flash in Ubuntu:

Just press Ctrl+Alt+T on your keyboard to open Terminal. When it opens, run the commands below.

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:sparkers/ppa
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install lightspark browser-plugin-lightspark

For 13.10

Do this. Ensure that universe is included in your software resources and, just press Ctrl+Alt+T on your keyboard to open Terminal. When it opens, run the command below.

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install browser-plugin-lightspark

You'll need to restart your browser

Also you can check out Ubuntu Packages, to manually install using a .deb file.

In Ubuntu 12.XX it is no longer necessary to add the extra repository. Simply installing does the trick:

sudo apt-get install lightspark browser-plugin-lightspark

You'll need to restart your browser. Then, it should work fine.
