Viewing Flash videos after installing flashplugin-nonfree v. 9

I was having problems viewing some Flash videos (e.g. those hosted on
MySpace), so I installed flashplugin-nonfree 184.108.40.206.2ubuntu1 through
Synaptic. After installing it and restarting Firefox I can view the movies
in question, but after restarting Firefox again, I can no longer view them.
(The sound works fine.) One example of a video I'm referring to
is a sweet site, BTW).
Does anyone know how to fix this? I know I can also download the beta
directly from Adobe (as per https://wiki.ubuntu.com/FlashPlayer9), but am
wondering if it's possible to do it through Synaptic, so that I continue
getting updates. (From my limited knowledge, I understand that packages not
installed through the package manager have to be updated and re/de/installed
manually, which can become a chore.)
By the way, before installing flashplugin-nonfree, I uninstalled another
Flash browser plugin, although I mysteriously can't find it through Synaptic
now, so I'm not sure what the name is.
