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.

Hello Bill.

You probably need to contact Adobe about this, since Flash is their software... ?
