Flash no working (Xfce version 4.4.2/ Mozilla Firefox version 3.0.6)
 
I'm not sure if I'm running on Ubuntu or Linux or if there's a difference. I'm very new to this.

Previously, I could not play embedded videos on Facebook. So I went to an Ubuntu forum and researched how to get a flash player plugin that would work. I typed in "sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree". I didn't get any real results. Then I tried to uninstall and reinstall the flash plugin through the Synaptic Package manager. That's when all hell broke loose.

YouTube videos don't play. Flash sites don't play. Ads don't play. Pandora radio doesn't play. And worst of all, I still can't play embedded videos on Facebook.

I'm willing to give information about my system if it will help me make this computer work.

Thank you in advance.

Gotcha. All I had to do was purge my system of the old flashplugin and work my way into getting on that worked. Thanks for all the help.
