I think he meant that some people might try to get this to work by
placing the libflashplayer.so file in their own, personal mozilla home
directory:

/home/<user's home directory>/.mozilla/plugins

The file must specifically be placed in

/usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins

If you put it in your home directory, it won't work, and it won't work
because Mozilla is intentionally designed such that this won't work.

The mozilla-plugin-config command is used to inventory and "wrap"
various plugins for use. While originally intended for wrapping 32-bit
plugins for use with 64-bit Mozilla, it also can be used to wrap 64-bit
plugins in a similar way. It's not absolutely necessary to do in this
case, but it definitely doesn't hurt. Some say it's still a good idea to
do.

Cheers,

Chris
