How do I configure Firefox 4 Beta to use the Adobe flashplayer 10.x plugin?
I'm using FireFox 4 Beta 1 on openSUSE 11.1 (x86_64). I created a ~/bin/firefox/plugins/ and ~/bin/plugins I copied the latest the libflashplayer.so there and also to /usr/lib/browser-plugins/
Since adding plugins and folders I get black flashplayer screens
Every time Firefox opened
== Prior to moving plugins Flashplayer crashed, blank flashback screen, no video after plugin directories and moves
Additional System Details
- -Shockwave Flash 10.1 r53
- The next generation Java plug-in for Mozilla browsers.
- User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686 (x86_64); en-US; rv:2.0b1) Gecko/20100630 Firefox/4.0b1

I'm also having this problem.
I have Firefox 4 beta installed in ~/.local/opt/firefox and I've tried placing the libflashplayer.so file (which works fine on Firefox 3.5 and other browsers) in the following places with no luck:

Firefox 4.0 b1 is a very old and outdated version.
You should update to the latest beta version: http://www.mozilla.com/firefox/all-beta.html
You can try to delete the file pluginreg.dat and let Firefox rebuild a new version.
