You forgot the $HOME at the beginning of the path.

Or a feature. Winetricks by default installs Firefox to a separate wineprefix buried deep within ~/.local/share/wineprefixes, without telling the user that it's doing that or asking if that's where they want it. OTOH, it doesn't do that with either Shockwave or Flash; those are installed to the default wineprefix, ~/.wine, unless you specify otherwise. That's like installing them on separate computers, so it's useless for your purposes.
So, what you need to do is either manually install Firefox to ~/.wine, or Shockwave and Flash to ~/.local/share/wineprefixes/firefox3. If you do the latter, you will need to apply the workaround mentioned in bug 17273, since the Firefox version installed by winetricks is affected by that bug.
