    Flash not working on Firefox (Precise Pangolin)

    Hi, this is my first post.

    I've been trying to get Adobe Flash to work since an (update manager) update about 2 weeks ago. I've tried:

    - uninstalling and reinstalling thru Synaptic, Software Center, Adobe site
    - removing the latest version and installing the 11.1 version (32-bit machine)
    - using the Flash-Aid add-on
    - moving and replacing flashplayer.so files in various places
    - installing hal library
    - installing ubuntu restricted extras
    - Re-installing Firefox
    - Installing Chromium
    - Editing values in /etc/adobe/mms.cfg

    I currently have the latest flash installed (through Software Center), and trying to play a youtube video shows a grey window with a message "The Adobe Flash plugin has crashed". Youtube videos WILL play if they are HTML5 (I am in the HTML5 trial).

    However, I am able to get youtube Flash videos to play without sound by pressing my "printscreen" button while the video window is loading. Weird.

    If anyone knows a solution or has a similar problem, I'd welcome the advice.

    Thanks so much,
    Clea

    *EDIT* - Hardware specifications
