In chrome you can enter about:plugins, see more details of the flash plugin, disable the latest and have any other version ON, but I don't know how to go as far as 10.3

Adobe has all their old flash versions available in their archive, I just don't know how to install it.

There's a complement to firefox for installing altenative versions of flash. Try it out and put in there the the url for earlier plugins. The extension is called "flash aid".
