    Slackware's firefox install directory


    Want to install flash player (FP) in my Slackware 12.0. FP asks for the install directory of my Firefox 2.0.0.14 browser and suggests it might be: /usr/lib/mozilla. AND I have such a directory. When I find / -name firefox I get 2 more which look viable: /usr/lib/firefox and /usr/lib/firefox2.0.0.4 (yes, 0.4). There is an executable firefox bourn shell in the latter.
    Where is the Firefox install directory? How can I be sure??

    Try placing the plugin in /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins or /usr/lib/firefox/plugins.

    Thanks I'll consider that if I am unable to find out where "flash player" wants it. Wish they could be specific so I don't have to hack about and then have to wonder if I pulled every thing out if my first try is wrong, as I have no idea what their install does. Such info is omitted. Their installer is only 2800 lines of code, I'll try reading it tomorrow-ugH!
