  ORIGINAL DESCRIPTION:
  Adobe flash player is configured on my system to ask before a website sets a flash cookie, so if a video (eg on youtube) is played, a dialogue box will pop up asking me whether or not to allow the website to store a cookie on my machine.  However, nothing happens when I click on either 'allow' or 'deny', so the box stays put and I can't view or control the video playing beneath it.
  On this machine I upgraded from 11.04 to 11.10; in 11.04 there was a program for adjusting the flash player settings in the System Settings control panel, but that program is no longer there and not accessible via the dash, so there is no obvious way to just configure flash to allow all cookies and avoid the dialogue box.
  
  Workaround: using Unity 2D instead
