Now I have no flash at all.

Previously to get flash I did:

149 sudo cp libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/
151 sudo ln -sf /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/firefox-addons/plugins/
152 sudo ln -sf /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/xulrunner-addons/plugins/

why no more Flash?

This is with a (mostly) new install of 8.10
Purge flashplugin-nonfree and try the Deb package from Adobe's site.
