Hey,

I've been having problems with flash in firefox for a few weeks.

I think it started by telling me I didn't have the plugins needed (It was) when viewing youtube etc. When I ran the 'find plugin' thing and chose Adobe Flash... it told me it was already installed.

I tried installing some of the alternatives: Shockwave and maybe some others but it still isn't working.

What is the code to run in terminal to purge everything to do with flash so I can then reinstall it?

Cheers.
