Nothing like answering my own question. :-(  I created 
the .mozilla/plugins directory, but flashplayer was there before.  
So obviously Iceweasel is looking somewhere else and all (all???) I 
have to do is find out where.

I have also changed the permissions on the libflashplayer.so file to 
no avail.

All help very gratefully received.
