I am using firefox-bin and I am trying to get flash to work.

I use a special plugin, the Yamaha Parts Catalogue, to order motorcycle parts. This plugin is written in Flash and it has stopped working in firefox-bin. The PC version of the Yamaha Parts Catalogue allows to save the list of parts to a PDF file, which is very convenient. I just print the PDF and bring it to the store and they can order the parts quick and easy. There is also an Android version, but that version does not have the PDF option...

The Flash software used to work with firefox-68. I recently switched to firefox-bin, which is now firefox-71.

I have freshplayerplugin installed but Flash does not work. The .so files are installed:

Code:
sagittarius ~ # ls /usr/lib64/nsbrowser/plugins/
gmp-gmpopenh264  libflashplayer.so  libfreshwrapper-flashplayer.so


I checked "about:plugins" and Flash is not listed. I have a feeling that firefox-bin is not using /usr/lib64/nsbrowser/plugins/. Can anyone tell where to put the .so-files so that firefox-bin can use them?

PS: google-chrome also does not play the Flash content. Same message: "flash plugin required"
