Thank you very much for taking the trouble to reply.
I may be misunderstanding you, but I'm taking it that you were referring to a directory that I should already have on my system. However, even after loading firefox-2.0-gtk1.uci following boot-up, I don't have any directory like that.
However, after posting my query, I hunted around to find out a bit more about Opera, for which, like Firefox, there's a special DSL version.
I found that, for Opera, you can easily nominate multiple paths to plugins. I downloaded Opera to /mnt/hda1 and was able to load it. I was then able to nominate, as an additional plugin path for it, /mnt/hda1 (where the flashplayer plugin is). Immediately, the flashplayer plugin worked in Opera.
All other things being equal, I'd prefer to use the latest DSL version of Firefox (since I use Firefox on my regular computer), but if that can't be done with the flashplayer plugin when I'm running DSL in RAM, then I'll use Opera instead.
Thanks again for replying,
