Hmmm... I have linux-f10-flashplugin-10.2r153 and it is installed
as /usr/local/lib/npapi/linux-f10-flashplugin/libflashplayer.so, not
in /usr/local/lib/browser_plugins/. This definitely looks

I must confess I've never tried it on STABLE/i386. Will try on

Try "pkg_info -W /usr/local/lib/browser_plugins/libflashplayer.so" and
see if it is stale. If so, you can remove it. Try "nspluginwrapper
-v -i /usr/local/lib/npapi/linux-f10-flashplugin/libflashplayer.so"
and see what happens next.
