How to make Flash under Firefox finally work under 64-bit Ubuntu


I've finally managed to make my Firefox usable again under amd64 Ubuntu by installing the proper version of 64bit Flash player directly from Adobe (current version is 10.)

I don't have stupid problems with stupid npviewer.bin anymore and my notebook finally doesn't lag.

Here's what you should do to install a native 64-bit version of Flash under Ubuntu:

  1. First of all, uninstall the original flash player:

    sudo apt-get remove flashplugin-installer nsplugin-wrapper
  2. Download the 64-bit version of Flash player for Linux from Adobe 64-bit Flash download page

    wget http://download.macromedia.com/pub/labs/flashplayer10/libflashplayer-10.0.42.34.linux-x86_64.so.tar.gz
    tar -xf libflashplayer-10.0.42.34.linux-x86_64.so.tar.gz

  3. Replace the old Flash player with new one:

    cp libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/


That's it. You now have a non-laggy Firefox.
If you are interested, I've also stumbled upon this ubuntuforums thread: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1358591. The guys there, however, do too much in my opinion - it looks like rocket science and shooting sparrows using a cannon for me.


P.S. I have found the logo image for this post while googling for 'firefox icon'. Clearly it will become a new firefox logo very soon.
