Is there a way to install a Flash Player in Mozilla on BackTrack with a 32 bit system

Hi, everyone. I'm completely new to BackTrack and Linux systems. I've been looking around the browser and different websites and I noticed that the Flash player for Mozilla isn't working, so I decided to look up a way to install a Flash player in BackTrack, but I haven't come across a Flash installation for a 32 bit system, which I'm using to run BackTrack.

Can someone tell me if a Flash player installation exists for BackTrack for a 32 bit system, where I can find it, and how to install it?

The normal Flash player installation is 32 bit, you should just have to go to the Flash installation page:

Also, BackTrack is just Ubuntu with some dragon logos slapped on it, so anything that works for Ubuntu should also work on BT.

Well, the you are using the wrong distro. Backtrack is a distro for penetration testing, made for security experts. I would recommend to use something more suitable for the desktop for normal use, may be Ubuntu or Mint.
