Oops:
rpm -qv firefox flash-plugin
firefox-10.0.7-1.el6.centos.i686
package flash-plugin is not installed

So much for all the times I've followed
links that told me it was already installed.

Alas:
yum install flash-plugin

How do I find out the answer?

Assuming I install it correctly this time, do I need to restart firefox?
I often have rather a lot of tabs open and there
doesn't seem to be any tidy way to save them.
