I can't tell why it works for you in fedora but when the flashplayer 
plugin is properly detected by the browser and it can't load a file it 
usually means the problems is "elsewhere". Anyway, Lenny was using 
Iceweasel 3.0.x (not 3.5.x) unless you got the updated version from the 
backports version and 3.0.x it can be very old.

I've never had problems with that. In fact, I'm using right now adobe 
flashplayer in Firefox (the plugin is located in my user's home) and 
gnash in Epiphany (plugin is installed system wide), they do not collide.
