$ locate libflashplayer.so /usr/lib64/nsbrowser/plugins/libflashplayer.so

The about:addons page only shows the OpenH264 Video Codec (it doesn't see flash is installed).

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

That document was really helpful. It seems that Firefox is not picking up the system location, but I managed to solve the problem with a quick:

$ ln -s /usr/lib64/nsbrowser/plugins /home/user/.mozilla/plugins

Thank you VERY much.

Is that where you put the Plugin or was installed there when you installed NPAPI Flash in package manager.

Normally I put the libflashplayer.so extracted from flash_player_npapi_linux.x86_64.tar.gz in created plugins folder at ~/.mozilla/plugins

If Firefox was running when you installed Flash then you can use about:plugins to scan for it and show what version you have and where it is located on system.
