Whatever happened to 'about:plugins' in the address bar?  That tells you
what plugin is being used, as well as the version (we are we talking
about iceweasel, right?).

Personally, here at home, /etc/alternatives/flash-mozilla.so is a
symlink to /home/curty/.mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so. This was done
because no taking precedence over /etc/alternatives was taking place. I
put the plugin there so I don't have to be root to update it after I
wget the newest version from Adobe.
