I think you should check which plugin iceweasel uses. You first have to
go to "about:config" (just type this without the quotes in the location
bar and hit ENTER). Then look for "plugin.expose_full_path" and set it
to "true". After that you can go to "about:plugins" and check if there
is an entry for "Shockwave Flash". Post the full filename that you see
listed there, or let us know if this entry is missing.
