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)
  • I'd like to know this as well. – James McMahon Sep 23 '11 at 15:26

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 libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins. Then restart firefox and it should be fine
