I have the adobe flash player installed on firefox and suddenly it is no more detected, I tried to install it again, but I got that it is installed!
I can't find it on the add-ons list, how can I fix that?

By the usual method, when you open a page that requires flash player, you get below the Tabs Bar that a an add-on is missing, i clicked on it and etc..
It was working fine but now suddenly it is not!

Have you tried installing Flash from source?

Can you paste these commands into the terminal (http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/terminal) and then post the output back here?
cat /etc/apt/sources.list
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree
ls /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins
ls -l /usr/bin/firefox

sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree
[/code]

I've been struggling to get flash installed. The instructions on the adobe site don't list that command. I just ran the above command and it ran fine!
