I have much weirdness going on with Flash player. I've got Elyssa and I've been using Flash 9, as 10 was a bit buggy with Firefox and kept eating my CPU, and everything was hunkydory.
Today I started to get messages on websites to upgrade to the latest Flash, and as said websites 'insisted' on my installing it I thought, sure, why not? Installation seemed fine, but then any site that required Flash said I didn't have it. So I looked at 'about:plugins', and no mention of Flash. Reinstalled, same problem, reinstalled, same problem. I've tried installing from Synaptic as well as the .deb and .tar.gz packages from Adobe, but no joy. I can't even get Flash 9 to work again. (I have found other mentions of this problem elsewhere on the net, but they're all related to the 'W' word, so not exactly helpful )
And now I'm slightly dizzy from going round and round in circles!
