I removed inept Adept with apt-get remove adept, rebooted, and was able
to successfully (I think) install with Synaptic the newer Flash that
Adept had reported was available but failed repeatedly to successfully

Unfortunately, I still get instead of a
working site.

Firefox reports two flash versions installed when about:config is
entered in the location window:

1-Flash Movie Player Version 0.4.12 compatible with Shockwave Flash 4.0

2-Shockwave Flash 7.0 r63 (

Both of these are reported by Firefox to support files of type swf and
spl. Is this the way it's supposed to be? Why is there still reference
to v4.0 of Flash? Is there something now installed the needs to be removed?
