If you just close it and reopen it, that should do the trick. If not you can try this in a terminal:

killall firefox

install adobe flash in firefox, then restart the browser closing the application or using killall firefox, if it doesn't work, you can go to and download in your desktop the package that contains the adobe flash for firefox.

Usually the second option is used when the first option doesn't works :-D

Good luck, Empressofall !
