Konqueror, reinstating the plugin files, doing another plugin scan, but
that didn't work either. Java and Javascript are both globally enabled. Is
there any remedy?

There has been a similar thread on the debian-kde mailinglist. There the
problem has been resolved when someone found out that the plugin got
installed into a different directory than the old one.

But since you say it is being found, there could be a different problem here.

Which distribution are you using?

I am using Debian (etch). I have seen the debian-kde thread, but since I
have compiled KDE myself from KDE sources, I'm not at all sure that the
distribution has anything to do with the problem - hence posting the
message here. I tried using the Debian installer for flash, and then tried
simply installing it manually. Both gave the same result as far as
Konqueror is concerned. Neither installed the plugin into any iceweasel
directory (although the Debian installer created links in /usr/lib/iceweasel
(or something similar, I can't remember exactly), but the files were
elsewhere. I made sure that the plugin search paths included the flash
installation directory, and the search for plugins found the new flash files.
