for the latest flash you will need to use chromium or chrome on linux.
i am not aware of a way to install that without using sudo (= being prompted for your user password).
plus, it most probably won't work on linux mint 9.
and that's the end of it really.
if you can neither re-install nor use elevated privileges, you're stuck with what you have.

really, you are doing it wrong.
10 people told you "you can't do it" and you keep ignoring them, then 1 person comes along and says "it's ok" and you believe them...

and just one more time about the administrator thing:
running any Linux distro without using the admin (or "sudo", as it is in linux) password is practically impossible.
your fathers advice is good, but in the end i think he meant that you have to act responsibly when using the password.

Like xset mentioned, Adobe Flash is no longer under development for Linux. You will only get security updates/patches for Adbobe Flash, but this will stop in 2017 as well. If you don't Chrome or Chromium and still want to use Firefox, install the pepperflash package: http://www.webupd8.org/2015/01/fresh...w-release.html

Else try Pipelight: http://pipelight.net/cms/articles/20...se-v0-2-8.html
