All the ones you mention plus hal-trinity.   But so has my husband's computer.  
He has only the one libflashplayer.so, the mozilla one.

I, on the other hand, have three:

Plus two actually on my computer in some old files belonging to a client.

Reported in iceweasel thus:
 File: libflashplayer.so,libflashplayer.so,libflashplayer.so
Path: /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so,/usr/lib/flashplayer-mozilla/libflashplayer.so,/home/lisi/.mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so
    Shockwave Flash 11.2 r202
And then a table.

My husband has:
File: libflashplayer.so
Path: /usr/lib/flashplayer-mozilla/libflashplayer.so
State: Enabled
Shockwave Flash 11.2 r202

Earlier in this saga, Peter had both flashplugin-nonfree and 
flashplayer-mozilla, but as it didn't work I aptitude purged both, then 
installed flashplayer-mozilla.

software is installed and working, so won't play.  It isn't.  I have allowed 
pop-ups, allowed cookies, cleared the cache.  I am stuck!
