Adobe fixed a bug I was tracking and released an update to their 64bit native flash for Linux. I've updated the code located on a very useful post to give you this bash script. Open up your favorite text editor and paste the contents below. Save the file and (from the command line) use chmod +x to make it executable. After that, execute the file with: ./yourfilename
You can now restart firefox.

Truth of the matter is that the this version of flash still doesn't work, I'm sure it works better for some applications and is more secure. But as I type this I still can't play the song I want to hear on imeem.com.
