I have 12.04 installed on my laptop. I noticed after installing Chromium and eventually google-chrome (stable) that the flash player for either browser was not working properly. When trying to exit from full screen while using Google Chrome the entire screen would go gray and the only solution would be to shut off the computer.

Do the two versions of flash conflict with each other to produce the "gray" screen?

I think this is more of a conflict between the two versions of flash as the system doesn't freeze, just produces a gray screen after pressing ESC from fullscreen and Firefox does not play youtube videos at all now. –  user212658 Dec 20 '13 at 18:26
