No more Flash for Firefox on Linux

If you'll recall that "right .so" is called /opt/google/chrome/chrome and includes not just Flash but also the whole 70MB browser… well, it's tricky indeed…

There's a 17 MB libgcflashplayer.so in /opt/google/chrome (at least on my box). I'm wondering if Firefox could load in that file...?

Interesting... I'm curious, does Chrome help itself to all available NPAPI plugins found on the local installation? When I navigate to chrome://plugins I see all the MPlayerPlug-In media player plugins I had compiled/installed for Firefox (but obviously, Chrome found them and chose to use them). Weird... (or maybe not)
