This question already has an answer here:

I have recently installed Ubuntu 12.10 on my Windows 8 machine, using Firefox for web browsing.

But for flash based sites, I get this missing plug-in error "Additional plugins are needed to display all the medias on this page", but if i go to the Adobe flash page and download and copy the files from the *.tar.gz, this problem is not going away. I got Ubuntu 64 bit and found this message from the size when downloaded the tar file.

Adobe Flash Player version Your system: Linux 64-bit, Firefox | 6.90 MB


any suggestion is highly appreciated.

run this command in terminal:
