I encountered this problem after upgrading to 9.04.
I upgraded my 2 computers. On one of them flash works fine - on this computer Kubuntu was installed from CD.
The second computer was upgraded from 8.10 to 9.04.
On my second computer first there was no voice in flash objects, but except this firefox did not freeze.
I discovered that the despite of the fact that aptitude shows installed version of flash is, the flash
running in my browser had version 9.
So I removed the flash plugin from ~/.mozilla/plugins/.
It helped me for a while - I had flash 10.
But there is one annoying thing in flash objects: if you click to fast on the flash object, the object
is killed and restarted. Only the flash object and not a whole website.
So it happened to me and after this I have no sound in my flash objects and in addition to this when I try to close
the tab containing such object, firefox freezes and only killing firefox process helps in this situation.

So I started repairing this problem. First idea was to install the flash package from my first computer. But it  didn't help. 
Acutally, the packages have the same version. I also tried to install flash plugin directly from adobe website - also without success. 
I removed/purged flash .deb packages. I even removed flash*.so file manually. With no success.

I also tried to run flash on epiphany and konqueror. In epiphany the
situation is the same as in firefox. In konqueror it even cannot find
flash plugin.

On my first computer flash works fine in konqueror.

I don't think is a problem with flashplugin-nonfree itself since:
1. it works on some computers and on some not.
2. it even worked on my computer before.
