In your ./mozilla directory create a subfolder .plugins if you don't
already have one. Then:

$ cd /home/<yourusername>/.mozilla/plugins

create a symbolic link to the location where you installed 10; example
of mine that is installed in /usr/lib/adobe-flashplugin:

$ ln -s /usr/lib/adobe-flashplugin/libflashplayer.so

Restart SeaMonkey.

Hint: the Ubuntu repositories are finally starting to become reliable
for flash. Use Synaptic & remove whatever you have installed and install
adobe-flashplugin (it's version 10). Or from a terminal:

$ sudo apt-get install adobe-flashplugin

Then use the exact 'ln -s' as provided above.
