Well, I have a fresh install of Fedora 9 and when I've accessed a WEB
page requesting Adobe Flash, I followed the instructions to install it.
After installation, Fire Fox plug-ins still do not register that Adobe
Flash is installed.  If I attempt to install it a second time, I have
the message saying it is installed.  I may be naive, but it seems to me
that during the install (either rpm or yum) that some element did not
get moved into the Fire Fox plug-in directory.  Therefore, Fire Fox does
not know that it exists on the system.  Any help to address this would
be appreciated.

Thanks.
