Install ubuntu-restriced-extras package

Open a terminal (CTRL+ALT+T) and issue

  sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras

Then try again.

If you still have a problem, you should try Google Chrome browser. It has flash player (latest version) integrated.

Hi Djscriz. Maybe try to enable some website with flash, next right-click mouse on the window and uncheck/deselect "Enable hardware acceleration" option (on the Display tab). If that's helps then probably there are issues with a graphic card driver etc. You can alwayc report a bug on a Adobe website: https://bugbase.adobe.com/index.cfm

Best regards.

Can you help with this problem?
