Did U do a clean installation?  Things like that can happen if U upgrade
from a previous distribution.

I only realised just a while ago that I couldn't play flash files with
Firefox.  I solved my problem by installing flashplayer-mozilla. 
Apparently, it was mysteriously removed without my knowledge during the
upgrade from Dapper to Edgy.
