do you have flash player installed

Make sure that you have the flashplugin-nonfree package installed on your system. Also Have you tried anything else that uses flash like youtube?

Well,you can type in firefox about:ūlugins to see what plugins is firefox using,and then try to remove them from there.Or you can type about:config and do the same thing.There is one more option,in console type apt-get remove name_of_the_plugin.
