Need two Facebook plug-ins

I just installled Ubuntu 9.04 today and it's been relatively painless so far. But one minor problem is with Facebook. My wife likes to play a game that requires an updated flash plug-in which Firefox can't seem to find. Also, we can't upload photos to Facebook because we're missing a plug-in allowing us to upload photos.
If there are people out there who can point me in the right direction, I'd appreciate it.

In the terminal, type:

sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras
This will fetch all the necessary codecs, players, and plugins that you need.
