Unhappy Flash not working for my Iceweasel =,(

Hi guys, well, I don know what is going on here, I have tried to install the flash pluggin for my Iceweasel in Lenny, and It seems to not work.

I also tried with the packages libflash-mozplugin and libflash-swfplayer and nothing. I can't navigate on flash-based webs, like for an example.

Any ideas or suggestions? Thanks in advanced!

Yeap, I did reboot

Yeap, I did reboot, and instead of the flash animation/video I get this:

"Hello, you either have JavaScript turned off or an old version of Adobe's Flash Player. Get the latest Flash player. "

Just like if no pluggin would be installed.

I was checking out in the add-ons section of the Iceweasel

And it indicates that I have installed 3 versions of slash, but none of them seems to work, and they are all Enabled.

Versions: 0.4.12
9.0 r100
9.0 r124

did you install flashplayer-mozilla ?

user@it-lenny:~$ aptitude search flash

i   flashplayer-mozilla                 - Macromedia Flash Player 

user@it-lenny::~$ apt-cache policy flashplayer-mozilla
  Version table:
 *** 0
        500 lenny/main Packages
This is the only flash installed on my Lenny machine and it works fine in iceweasel.
