i'm assuming you are trying to play flash videos in firefox like youtube?

Open a Terminal from the menu Applications → Accessories → Terminal and type:

sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree

thats it. now flash works.

If you type about:plugins into firefox, you will see what plugins you've got installed, and what file types they are enabled to handle.

I can play the video on the front page of using Flash 10.0 r15 and Firefox 3.0.6.
