Flash plugin not updated by yum

Fedora 13-64. Just update the flash-plugin with yum and it says it succeeded:

Code:
Running Transaction
  Updating       : flash-plugin-10.1.82.76-release.i386                                        1/2 
  Cleanup        : flash-plugin-10.1.53.64-release.i386                                        2/2 

Updated:
  flash-plugin.i386 0:10.1.82.76-release
But the about: plugins shows the old version, 10.1.53
Code:
    File: nswrapper_32_64.libflashplayer.so
    Version: 
    Shockwave Flash 10.1 r53
Some files:
Code:
# ll /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins-wrapped/nswrapper_32_64.libflashplayer.so 
-rwxr-xr-x. 1 root cpn 126152 Aug  2 21:55 /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins-wrapped/nswrapper_32_64.libflashplayer.so

# ll /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so 
lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 39 Aug 11 15:37 /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so -> /usr/lib/flash-plugin/libflashplayer.so

# ll /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins-wrapped/nswrapper_32_32.libflashplayer.so
-rwxr-xr-x. 1 root cpn 126052 Aug  2 22:04 /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins-wrapped/nswrapper_32_32.libflashplayer.so

# ll /usr/lib/flash-plugin/libflashplayer.so
-rwxr-xr-x. 1 root root 11950976 Jul 28 04:56 /usr/lib/flash-plugin/libflashplayer.so
Any suggestion?

Re: Flash plugin not updated by yum

You _must_ re-start all web browsers after updating plug-ins.

Re: Flash plugin not updated by yum

I have problems with the flashplayer plugin. The first two tries (downloading and installing with package-manager), the player apparently installed, but in reality didn't. Then I downloaded the rpm-file to my 'sources' directory and installed from terminal 'rpm -Uvh <file>-
The plugin then installed in usr/lib, but not in the plugins-directories of neither Firefox nor Opera. But I test-ran the browsers, but they reported 'plugin not installed.' Then I copied the flashplugin.so-file to both the Mozilla and Opera 'plugin'-directories. Tested again: same rsponse: failure.

I have a fresh F13 (64) installation.
I don't know what to do next.

And yes: I did restart the browser(s). I even restarted the whole system.
