(Making the article apply to Mozilla (which was remarkably easy =)). Keeping "/usr/local/bin/firefox/plugins/" as an example path since it's still a reasonable example.)

If you cannot find a Flash Player for your OS, find it manually on this page.

Contents

Windows

Download the Macromedia Flash Player installer and install it.

Installation Issues

The Macromedia Flash Player installer doesn't list my browser
Mozilla stores information about Flash in the Windows registry, which is used by plugin installers to locate your Mozilla installation directory. If this information does not exist, is incomplete, or incorrect, the Macromedia Flash Player installer may not be able to find your browser.

If your browser is not shown in the list of available browsers, you can manually select your browser plugins directory by clicking on "Other Browser" and browsing to it. Note that this will not install scripting support.

The Macromedia Flash Player installer doesn't install scripting support
The Macromedia Flash Player installer does not install the scripting support file (flashplayer.xpt) for undetected browsers. On some systems, it does not install it for recognized browsers like Firefox and Mozilla either. This is a known issue with the installer and Macromedia may fix it in a future release. To obtain flashplayer.xpt, see PluginDoc for instructions.

Linux

Download the Macromedia Flash Player. Once downloaded, extract the files "libflashplayer.so" and "flashplayer.xpt" from the archive and copy them to your browser's plugins directory (e.g. "/usr/local/bin/firefox/plugins/").

MacOS

Download and run the Macromedia Flash Player installer.

Solaris

The Flash Player is available for Solaris Sparc and Intel x86. Download the Macromedia Flash Player. Once downloaded, extract the files "libflashplayer.so" and "flashplayer.xpt" from the archive and copy them to your browser's plugins directory.

OS/2 Warp

Macromedia Flash Player for OS/2 Warp is available from InnoTek Systemberatung GmbH. To install it, launch the installer and follow the instructions. Macromedia Flash Player for OS/2 is not free. Licenses cost money and are available at the Mensys Online Shop.
