Hi Joe,

Nope didn't reinstall swfdec-moailla because it had "mozilla" in it.
Did that a few minutes ago and found the plugins
in /usr/lib64/browser-plugins. From there, I linked them
to /opt/Mozilla/Firefox/lib64/plugins. They showed up in that

However, I then opened up Firefox and did an about:plugins and they did
not show up. Needless to say it did not work on the web either when
the website continues to complain about the flash plugin.
