    There was a Flash update recently to version 10.0.42.34, looks like you don't have that one installed yet.
    The new 64-bit version is avaiable here:
    Adobe Labs - Downloads: Flash Player 10 for 64-bit Linux

    This is available in the updates repo. It might be much easier to do an update with zypper/Yast.

    The "flash-player" package from the repositories only has the 32-bit flash plugin.

    And that does fine on 64-bit systems. The OP hasn't indicated that he is using 64-bit Flash, and likely has the package from the non-oss repo.

    Why bother using old 32-bit junk when you can use 64-bit instead?

    Switching to 64-bit is really easy:
    • close Firefox, then right-click on the desktop, Run > kdesu dolphin
    • go to /usr/lib/browser-plugins and rename libflashplayer.so
    • in your home directory: "View > Show hidden files", enter .mozilla directory
    • there, create a new directory named plugins and enter it
    • copy the libflashplayer.so there which you extracted from the file downloaded from the Adobe labs site:

    Main problem with that is that the burden is on you to follow security updates. With the official supported package, this is pretty much automated. I haven't noticed any degradation or performance issues with the 32bit, but I might if I saw them side-by-side.
