 Firefox is still working for me, with the same versions of Firefox & Flash
that you mentioned. Did you try opening Firefox with Add-Ons disabled (from
the Help menu)? I just tried it and YouTube still worked.

As for Chromium, I believe it specifically does NOT use the same Flash
plugin that Firefox uses. I believe you have to go elsewhere and get the
Pepper Flash plugin for Chromium,  OR use Chrome from Google, which has
Pepper Flash included. (That's the version I'm running here.)
