Quick followup. I did the 64 bit Adobe workaround as well, and it works
great now. However, there were many steps to kill the old Flash plugin
(I had installed based on this article originally

Here's the commands I ran from my history (after extracting the adobe .tar.gz download to ~/Temp):
sudo rm -f /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/*flash*
sudo rm -f ~/.mozilla/plugins/*flash*
sudo rm -f /usr/lib/firefox/plugins/*flash*
sudo rm -f /usr/lib/firefox-addons/plugins/*flash*
sudo rm -rfd /usr/lib/nspluginwrapper

sudo cp ~/Temp/libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/
sudo cp ~/Temp/libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/firefox-addons/plugins

I'm now able to watch fullscreen HD from Youtube & scroll around,
play/pause without issues.

P.S. I'm running the NVidia 185.18.36 drivers on a Geforce 8600GT on a
Core 2 Duo CPU w/ 4Gb of RAM.
