No, and you should install flashplugin-nonfree, if your on 64bit and that doesn't work try flashplayer-mozilla. Both can be installed with synaptic.

Though flashplayer-mozilla might be just debian, I'm pretty sure there's one for ubuntu somewhere. Really it's just installing nspluginwrapper

What ever I did, (re install firefox, install opera, flashplayers) the best I get is a very slow flash player and sometimes it gets stuck in firefox, opera shows just white screen.
In google I see many complains on the same issue , didn't see any good solution yet .
Any ideas ?
