Hi Francesco,

Close all instances of Firefox, look under ~/.mozilla for a file
named "pluginreg.dat" and delete it. Previous installations may
have 'planted' more copies of pluginreg.dat in other/lower subdirectories, so
be sure to delete any that you can find.

When you next launch Firefox, it will re-register all the plug-ins it can find
and, hopefully, will pick up the updated Flash Player.

hth & regards,
