What's the easiest way to get a debug Flash Player (the one you can download from here, though I don't care if it's downloaded automatically) working in Firefox?

  • 64 bit system, default Firefox from repository
  • If possible, I don't want the flash player to be replaced by a newer but non-debug version automatically (updating to a new debug version is ok)
  • Want the most recent version (10.2 at the moment)

If you follow the links from the site you provided, download "For Other Linux (.tar.gz). Once you download it, untar it, tar xvf install_flash_player_11_linux.i386.tar.gz (or whatever version you downloaded, then copy the .so into the right directory sudo cp /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins. Then restart firefox and it should be fine
