Yes. I tried to solve the above problem by adding linux libraries into
the plugin directory, after which mozilla (or phoenix in my case) no longer
complained but always crashed on every flash movie.

Unfortunately for some unfathomable reason more and more flash sites seem to
absolutely *require* flash 6 :( I really, really, really wish that there
would be an open source flash plugin.


Nostalgia ain't what it used to be.
