Hi. I have just installed Debian 8 and I downloaded Firefox 37.02 (on format .tar.gz), then I downloaded the last version of Flash Player. I extract the files but I don't know where to put the file "libflashplayer.so" because in firefox directory I don't have any directory called "plugins"

where should I paste this file?

Thanks, sorry for my bad english

If you are the only user there is a simple place to have your Plugins manually installed this way for Firefox, Thunderbird and SeaMonkey.

in your Home look for .mozilla and then create a folder with name of plugins (all lowercase.

Then you can put the libflashplayer.so into the created plugins folder.

If Firefox was not closed when doing this then you can either restart it or type in about:plugins in Location (address)bar for Firefox to scan and find this.
