Visit the following link

http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

Select appropriate OS and download version as tar.gz

Click download button .

Open the terminal and move to your download location . In my system the default path for downloads is /home/user/Downloads

cd /home/user/Downloads/

you can see your downloaded flash archive in the name of “install_flash_player_[VERSION]_[OS NAME].tar.gz

Extract the file by following command

tar -xvzf install_flash_player_11_linux.x86_64.tar.gz

now you can see 1 new file and 1 new folder extracted from the archive.

Move the file to your mozilla plugin directory

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

and move the folder inside /usr directory.

cp -r usr/* /usr

Thats it .. Restart firefox. To check your current version on adobe flash player plugin visit the following link.
