When I create the new user, flash in FF doesn't work at all. 
Instructions from 
http://www.freebsd.org/doc/handbook/desktop-browsers.html (*Under 
FreeBSD 8.X*) are followed.
symlink /usr/local/lib/browser_plugins/libflashplayer.so -> 
/usr/local/lib/npapi/linux-f10-flashplugin/libflashplayer.so exists.
Also packages
are installed.

The reason why flash works in my main user is that 
~/.mozilla/plugins/npwrapper.libflashplayer.so file exists there.

I am not sure what this file 
~/.mozilla/plugins/npwrapper.libflashplayer.so is and where did it come 

So does this mean that instructions in handbook are wrong?
