But there is not any or in /opt/google/chrome directory (in Google Chrome 21). I find /opt/google/chrome/PepperFlash/ and create a link to /.mozilla/plugins/ but firefox did not know it as a plugin.

How can i use The Google Chrome 21 Flash Plugin in Firefox (14) in Ubuntu 12.04.

I also had tried this way and didn't work. Anyway, it's directory where Google locating Flash Player in its Chromium Engine. Maybe It's end for Firefox in Linux. I mean end of supporting Flash – obysr Aug 29 '12 at 19:36
You can use "Adobe Flash Plugin" instead of Google Chrome Flash Plugin, but i hope we can find a solution for using Google Chrome Flash Plugin in Firefox because it is more reliable than"Adobe Flash Plugin". – Saeed Zarinfam Aug 29 '12 at 19:48
There is not anyway to do this? – Saeed Zarinfam Sep 5 '12 at 4:12
No need for flash in the future. HTML5 ;) – blade19899 Sep 5 '12 at 13:01

I think i find answer to my question:

Google Chrome 21 use Pepper project for supporting flash and mozilla team said in his wiki:

Mozilla is not interested in or working on Pepper at this time. See the Chrome Pepper pages.

Therefore it seems there is no way to do this.

There is a project called FreshPlayerPlugin that implements a wrapper between NPAPI and Pepper API. it should be able to make the Chrome flash player plugin adapt in Firefox.
