You probably still have the ver7 .so in one of the plugins paths for

I used locate to find all the libflashplayer.so's. Most are symlinks
to the /usr/lib/Mozilla/plugin directory where the real .so is.
I tried FF on a site that worked with the v.7 plugin. The v.9
plugin was called (obviously as it's the only one on my system now)
but there was no sound.
On an aside, I tried a beta of 9; audio would often lock into a
repeating stutter, but someone pointed me to a more recent beta, and
most of the audio problems went away. But there were still enough
irritations that I've gone back to 7, and when I come across a site
that needs 9, more often than not, that site loses my eyeballs.
Occasionally I'll quickly flip over to 9 (I just rename-swap the 7
and 9 versions of the file and restart FF).

I don't appear to have ANY version of flash currently installed --
$ aptitude search flash
p flashplayer-mozilla - Macromedia Flash Player
p flashplugin-nonfree - Adobe Flash Player plugin installer
p flashybrid - automates use of a flash disk as
p libflash-dev - GPL Flash (SWF) Library -
p libflash-mozplugin - GPL Flash (SWF) Library -
p libflash-swfplayer - GPL Flash (SWF) Library -
p libflash0c2 - GPL Flash (SWF) Library - shared
p libroxen-flash2 - Flash2 module for the Roxen
p m16c-flash - Flash programmer for Renesas M16C
p newsflash - gets news with the newnews command
p vrflash - tool to flash kernels and romdisks
/$ locate libflashplayer.so
These are all on my Sarge partitions. The only plugin in
/usr/local/lib/firefox/plugins is libnullplugin.so.
But the site above loads and plays. How, if I don't have any
flashplayer installed? Does firefox 2.0 have some version of flash
