    flash stopped working ubuntu precise/firefox 18

    I pulled a hard drive from a bit newer machine and put it in this one yesterday. I checked Jave and flash both were working fine. This morning - no video though nothing was changed between then and this morning. I'm really puzzled. I tried reinstalling flash through synaptic. No help there.
    Ubuntu Precise no tweaks
    Firefox 18
    AMD Athlon XP cpu

    I'm not sure which version of adobe flash synaptic installs.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    i remember that i had the same issue some time ago: the main reason is that the flash installer set a wrong path, as explained somewhere on the adobe flash forum.

    An Athlon XP? That cpu dosen't support flash version 11.2 which you likely was installed in the updates/reinstall. You will have to manually downgrade flash to 11.0 to get flash to work on that cpu.

    Thank you for the replies. Now for the silly question - how do I go about the downgrade to 11.0 - can that be done through synaptic or command line or is there another method?

    edited to add - I can't seem to find 11.0 for linux anywhere so far.
