On-going problems with flashplugin for IW

Hello all

In Iceape and other browsers (e.g. Opera) I can watch embedded (streaming?) videos on-line. In Iceweasel/ Swiftfox I cannot. Insterad I get a variation on this message: "Note: Either you do not have Adobe Flash Player installed on your computer or your Flash Version is outdated. You need Flash Player in order to view this item. Download Flash Player now. <http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer>"

I have double-checked and I have the latest flashplugin-nonfree installed and seems to be accessible to the other browsers, so why doesn't IW "see" the plugin and use it as well? In my ~.mozilla/plugins/ directory the library libflashplayer.so is installed and executable and as far as I can tell, the plugins are registered with IW as seen by doing about:plugins in the address bar.

A search using Google only keeps showing me the same darn resolution - install the nonfree plugin and check that it is in the about:plugins.

Now what?  Any help on this please as it is puzzling and irritating.
