You will still need HAL. I've indicated previously how I did it but
(because memeory fails me) it may not be the best route for you.

Thanks to Curt for raising the question of which libflashplayer.so is
used by Iceweasel when more than one is on the system. The installation
of flashplayer-mozilla causes /etc/alternatives/flash-mozilla.so to
point to /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/flash-mozilla.so. But, do you have
this file? If you do not, Iceweasel will fall back to using the file in
/home/lisi/.mozilla/plugins/. It strikes me that libflashplayer.so
should not be there.
