It looks like both flashplugin-nonfree
AND adobe-flashplugin are installed.  I seriously doubt I
would have discovered this without your help.

Several weeks ago, I asked someone about installing Flash Player 10.1 because I have been to several Web Sites that indicate I do not have Flash Player 10 so they are unable to provide the Flash content on their Web Site.  They told me to run the 
sudo apt-get remove --purge flashplugin-nonfree command to remove the installed version of Flash Player and then go to Adobe's Web Site and install the Adobe Flash Player for my OS.  I installed ".deb for Ubuntu 8.04+" from http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/.

I am not sure how to proceed or how to find out what the pros and cons
are for each version of Flash Player; I just know you want the latest
version of any Flash Player (10.0.highest version) (10.1.highest
version) due to security vulnerabilities related to Flash Player.

Here are the results of the command:
