Go to "about:config", put "plugin" into the filter box and find the
setting called "plugin.expose_full_path". Change it to "true" and
about:plugin will show you the full path to all the plugin files that
iceweasel uses. This should be useful for cleaning up the mess of
different flash-plugin versions that you seem to have on your system.

I use the flashplayer-mozilla package from debian-multimedia.org. All
flash content that I have encountered in recent months has worked
without problems (both on 32 and 64 bit).
