I have a strange problem with Thunderbird, Firefox and the Adobe flash player. When I simply open Firefox and navigate to a page containing a flash player, say, a youtube video, everything works as it is supposed to.
However, when I click on a link in an email message in thunderbird that takes me to a page containing a flash player, it doesn't work! In the case of youtube the "video" is just a black box. Also when I then go to the youtube homepage and look up the video from there it still won't do it.
It seems that when Firefox is spawned by Thunderbird, flash player doesn't work in it.
Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
EDIT: I've already tried reinstalling the flash player using the software center, and as you might guess or I wouldn't be posting this, without any result.
