If you do that you will not get flash videos from some other sites that are either

not yet using html5, or
do not work with the flash-video-replacer add-on.

I assume you must be either signed up for html5 or are using the replacer add-on.

To get rid of the blue? colour you can try right clicking in a flash window and in the settings dialog disabling graphic acceleration. It may overcome the problem. Aklternatively you can use a previous version of flash ( which you can get from lovinglinux at http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1953796. Scroll down the post a bit to find the links for32 & 64 bit versions, but be aware of the security considerations of the earlier flash version.
