Linux Mint 12 - flash player crashes


I'm a newbie to Linux and need to make this work - the thought of having to move back to MS XP is too painful to think about.

I'm having a problem watching Flash via Firefox, the message is the flash plugin did not work, or (usually at the moment) Firefox just crashes and tries to restart. I've install the Firefox Flash plugin - that was hopeless.

Please help.

Your new Linux buddy.

There's a config file for the flash player. I have one but forget where it is. Google it, and it's simple enough
