Macromedia Flash is a proprietary, binary module (aka no source-code, no way
of fixing it or know what it does). Flash version 8 is not available for
i386 Linux. Apparently version 9 or 8.5 may be made available, but that
isn't the case yet. The best you can do for the moment is:
sudo apt-get install wine
Download the Win32 version of Firefox:
to your desktop and double-click it to install it. Then use that version of
Firefox to click on:
and install Flash 8 into Firefox for MS Windows.
Now you should have a Firefox icon on your desktop, which will load the
Win32 version (with Flash 8) using Wine. Magical.
