Help! Flash 64 Bit Crashing Firefox

I just upgraded my Ubuntu Hardy the Ubuntu Jaunty release. Before upgrading, I was able to watch movies on Now, I can't.

I was attempting to fix it so I could watch vids on, so, I installed 64 bit flash following the instructions posted on this site ( which I found posted in the Ubuntu forums )
Now, flash crashes Firefox. How can I remove this off my system? I need flash to work.

Thank you.

You could just find the flash plugin in synaptic. You can remove it from there. I have been using 32bit flash version and I have not had any issue with performance as yet.

Hi Foxfire,
It's all about how you installed the plugin. Are you going to tell us? The actual plugin is called All you have to do to remove it is delete the file from the appropriate folder. The appropriate folder depends on whether you've done a system-wide install or just for your account. Knowing how you actually installed the plugin makes giving you advice much simpler.
