Flex Builder 2 complains about NPSWF32.dll

Are you getting an annoying warning message that says

C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\plugins\NPSWF32.dll
Flex Builder cannot locate the required version of Flash Player. You may need to install Flash Player 9.0 or reinstall Flex Builder. Do you want to try to run your application with the current version?

Solution: (that worked for me)
Copy the file NPSWF32.dll manually from C:\WINDOWS\system32\Macromed\Flash to C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\plugins

This worked for me and got rid of that annoying popup. But I’m not sure, what consequences this will have in the future after further installs/updates of Firefox/Flash etc.

Adobe’s Solution: to this problem can be found at
Flex Builder 2: Installed Adobe Flash Player is Not a Debugger

Another Discussion: (also talks about copying the file manuallY)
new flash player?
