You need to install ttf-mscorefonts-installer available from the Ubuntu Software Centre:

Install via the software center

or (using the terminal Ctrl-Alt-T)

sudo apt-get install msttcorefonts

Please review this question to understand why Flash needs these common Microsoft true type fonts to work properly
