You didn't google hard.

Anyway, enable nonfree and then apt-get install flashplugin [I think!]

Non free is enabled

Quote:
apt-get install flashplugin

Package flashplugin is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
However the following packages replace it:
flashplugin-nonfree
E: Package flashplugin has no installation candidate

You may already have it installed. It looks like it from one of the above posts.
Have a look at the /usr/lib/firefox/plugins directory and see if libflashplayer.so exists.

If not, find it, and move it there.

Here proof of mine working and the aforementioned directory (With an alternative).

move the flash ".so" from /usr/lib/firefox/plugins to /usr/lib/iceweasel/plugins or /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins or any folder looking like your browser name in /usr/lib

If you are running Debian stable you need to first add the backports.org repo to your /etc/apt/sources.list

Then do aptitude update
aptitude install backports.org-keyring flashplugin-nonfree

Adobe flash is only in non-free in testing and unstable, it is not nor will it ever be in the official Debian stable repos.
