A member of the Forums Staff by the name of lovinglinux is everyone's greatest resource on everything related to Flash.

What you are describing is called the "Smurf" effect after a children's cartoon here in the US. The main characters are all blue.

Please have a look at this (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=11824089). The first solution requires you to type two commands in the terminal.
