I had a similar problem (flash was way too slow). I installed flash player 10 beta and it got pretty acceptable (actually I think its faster than in windows, but as I only have ubuntu in this pc, I don't really know for sure). Anyway, it got good, but I can't see fullscreen, still too slow.

You can download flash plugin here (http://labs.adobe.com/downloads/flashplayer10.html).

Another thing I found useful was this guide: Comprehensive Multimedia & Video Howto (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=766683)
See part 5(troubleshooting), it describes what I think is your problem, but just try to install flash plugin 10 beta, its faster than reading the howto and probably will solve the problem of it being slow.

I remembered now that there is a something a bit obscure in the script that installs the flash 10 plugin in firefox. It says something like "ask the administrator to delete some file". And I rememmber that that file was hard to find. If you have the same problem tell me (the name of the file) and I'll tell you where to find it.
