Hi guys ,

I know this sounds a bit very basic but how do I install flashplayer on firefox , my issue is when I go to www.youtube.com i get the following message "Hello, either you have JavaScript turned off or an old version of Adobe's Flash Player. Get the latest Flash player." so I follow the link it downloads flash player and even install it but nothing seems to work in youtube or flash site .

please help

In the Synaptic package manager is the flash installer. It is the one that is safe to download. What you might find on some site on the internet will probably not install on your Ubuntu installation. You might need to be sure that the No-script add on in Firefox is set to let you view YouTube.
