    Adobe flash player 10 problems ubuntu 10.04LTS

    Hi,
    I've jut started using linux seriusly for the first time and I've found it amzingly fast campared to windows I had just a few isues installing my scanner but now works perfect.
    The only problem that i have is with the flash player I can watch youtube I can see pages but when I try to use megavideo or similar streaming pages works really slow and it doesn't work in full screen plus crashes the plugin.
    what can I do?
    thanks for your time!!

    Please provide the output of the following commands and instructions. This will make sure I will have a good understanding of your Firefox and Flash installations, so I don't need to guess what might be happening to your system:

    1 - Flash Version

    Type about:config in Firefox address bar, then type plugin.expose_full_path in the filter, then double-click the same item in the results to make it true. Then type about:plugins in the address bar, find Shockwave Flash, copy the corresponding Path and Version and paste here. it should look lie the image below:



    2 - Firefox version and architecture

    To find Firefox version and architecture, click "Help >> About Mozilla Firefox" in the menu. The info will be located at the bottom of the info dialog:




    3 - System Info

    Execute the following commands then copy the generated file, named firefox-report.txt from your Desktop and upload it here or paste the contents.

    To execute those commands, select the entire content below, then go to "Applications >> Accessories >> Terminal" and click the terminal with the middle-mouse button.

    Code:
    echo 'Ubuntu Architecture' > ~/Desktop/firefox-report.txt
    echo '' >> ~/Desktop/firefox-report.txt
    uname -a >> ~/Desktop/firefox-report.txt
    echo '' >> ~/Desktop/firefox-report.txt

    I disabled Shockwave from the Firefox Add-ons. Now, these plug-ins have disappeared from the menu and from the list in about:config of Firefox.

    If I try to re-download and reinstall them, I get a message that they are already installed.

    How do I re-enable them?
