    getting flash to work on Amazon movies...

    I recently installed Ubuntu 14 on my MacBook Pro and use rEFIt to switch between them. I want to transistion to Ubuntu as my main OS because Mavericks keeps crashing everytime I seem to install a program it doesn't like. I recently reinstalled Mavericks with a new partition/installation etc and rebuilt the whole thing. It was working crash free for awhile but now it crashes again (usually after a few hours) and I'm just tired. Ubuntu, however, is not crashing. How ironic.

    Anyway, I want to stay more and more in Ubuntu over time and so I'm trying to nail down the most aggravating problems as I go along. One of them is the inability to play movies on Amazon which I do frequently to relax. I've installed the Flash player but that doesn't seem to be good enough for Amazon. Here's the message I get after Amazon attempts to "update" the Flash Player.

    The funny thing is that I the movie PREVIEWS play alright. And youtube movies play (well, sort of ha ha). I thought about writing to Amazon tech support. How do I find which version of Flash I've installed? I'm sure it's the latest version of Firefox. Any suggestions?
