Do you have the 'gnash' package installed? I had this same problem, and then I unistalled gnash and the flash player worked just fine.

Use the Synaptic package manager (GNOME) or if your using KDE, Adept to search for and remove this package. After you are done doing this, see if you can then view flash content.

Hope this helps!

you may need xulrunner also for ff-3.0 to work fully

If you have the flashblock add on installed, add *google.com to your flashblock whitelist, otherwise it will block the google talk gadget.
