Updating Flash without Admin Rights
I have Firefox installed with standard user privileges. I used to be able to extract the "Flash Player.plugin" from the dmg file and place it in "~/Library/Internet Plug-Ins" ... but now I can only get a file called "Flash Player.plugin.lzma"
I can't install flash with admin privileges. So what can I do?
== I updated Firefox... the whatsnew page said I should update Flash.

You probably need to contact Adobe about this, since Flash is their software... ?
Hi, try with this instruction: http://www.varesano.net/blog/fabio/installing+flash+player+plugin+firefox+without+having+administrator+access+or+premissions
Worked for me (and many others, as seems)
