If you want a GUI, Synaptic or packagesearch can list files that are installed by a package. Otherwise, dpkg is your tool.

I'll give you a hint, Vanilla Firefox is not installed in Debian 9.1 (Stretch) by default, there is a package called "firefox-esr" :mrgreen:

Then I guess "*title*" isn't what you meant after all.

Come to think of it, if "*TITLE*" is all you can be bothered to say,
then *ANSWER* is all I'm prepared to say in response.

Have you tried the solution from this Mozilla support forum? :?:
https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1030381
This is installed from tarball, 64 bit, installed to /usr/lib64/firefox. The proper location has changed to:

/usr/lib64/firefox/browser/plugins/

After untarring, the .../browser directory exists, but not .../browser/plugins, so it's not obvious that is the new home. The old directory (/usr/lib64/firefox/plugins/) no longer works.

For a single user, you can just put libflashplayer.so in ~/.mozilla/plugins/
“ computer users can be divided into 2 categories:
Those who have lost data
...and those who have not lost data YET ”
