Firefox can't use installed Adobe Flash player

Bug #175362 reported by Søren Bredlund Caspersen on 2007-12-10
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
firefox (Ubuntu)
Nominated for Hardy by Mark Stosberg

Bug Description

Binary package hint: firefox

On Hardy Alpha 1 when going to a website requiring Flash I get the top bar "Additional plugins..."

I click Install Missing Plugins..., choose Adobe Flash Player.

It is already installed, I get in my terminal:

sc@sc-laptop:~$ firefox
/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/apt/ FutureWarning: apt API not stable yet
  warnings.warn("apt API not stable yet", FutureWarning)

And a box saying Package 'fashplugin-nonfree' is already installed.
I'm told firefox has installed the plugin and needs a restart.
I close firefox and surf to the same website and flash still is not working.
