1. Open the Ubuntu Software Centre (from the Applications menu at the top right of your screen)

2. Type "flash plugin" in the search box in the top right corner of the Software Centre.

3. Highlight the Adobe Flash plugin result, and click the Install button. Provide password and so forth.

4. Restart FF and enjoy.
