what *is* the proper recipe for 64-bit flash support?



  as i posted yesterday, after a fresh f11 beta install, the first
time i brought up firefox and browsed to a page with embedded flash, i
got:

  "Additional plugins are needed ... "       "Install Missing Plugins"

  however, as i reported, if you simply follow the recipe, elect to
install those plugins, you get to download something from adobe, it
gets installed, etc etc, but when that's all over, you *still* don't
have flash support, and i'm guessing that that set of steps would work
fine for i386 but not for an x86_64 install.

  is that correct?  and if so, what *is* the proper set of steps to
get flash support for a 64-bit f11 install?  and if the default recipe
doesn't actually work for 64-bit, it seems that it shouldn't walk a
user through those steps if it's not eventually going to work after
it's over.

  or am i missing something?  i have a fresh, fully-updated, x86_64
f11 beta sitting in front of me, i haven't touched anything related to
flash, and i'm willing to test whatever recipe someone wants to
suggest and report back.
