you don't need wine to install flash on firefox. – RolandiXor Jan 11 '11 at 1:48

Open a terminal (Applications > Accessories > Terminal) and type:

sudo apt-get install flashplugin-installer

It will ask for your password.

Restart firefox afterwards. (Firefox is installed by default).

PlayOnLinux is a great application for managing Wine and installing Windows programs on Linux. There's an Ubuntu package on the website, so it's easy to install.

After downloading and installing the program, you can launch it by going to Applications > Games > PlayOnLinux. Follow the prompts to install Firefox for Windows and the application will also install Flash for Windows.
