Updating did not go from Mint 16 - Petra (which I have), to Mint 17. I
am in the process of reinstalling using Mint 17. Once I am done with
that, I intend to try prebar.
Thanks for all the good advice..

WS=> I think I was premature in thinking that I solved the problem with
a full reinstall. I installed the latest version of Mint/Mate which is
17.1. When I tried using FF to visit BBC.com I still have the same
problem. I then tried Opera and it too has the same problem. Other
websites that do not use flash are displayed correctly.
I did some investigation into the plugins for firefox and the same old
Shockwave Flash version 11.2 r202is being used. I am going to try
prebar to see if that makes any difference. Another option is to
install Ubuntu (I hope you have the Mate option) and see what happens.
Since I dual boot with Windows, I also will see If Windows is affected (
I don't use Windows to surf the web, It isn't safe.).
