BTW, I just remembered something - there is a Fedora-specific (ish)
wrinkle here, which is that if you have SELinux enabled, it will
interfere with Flash as installed from the upstream tarball (not sure
about the RPM repo) until you relabel the file as recommended by the
SELinux denial alert message. For me this manifested as any page with
Flash on it taking an age to display (and rendering Firefox
un-responsive until it did), and the Flash content not working.
