Sounds like Flash has gotten currupted probaly a config file.
Check this out see if it helps your issue:

sudo apt-get --purge remove flashplugin-installer
sudo apt-get --purge autoremove
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:sevenmachines/flash
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get -y install flashplugin64-installer


Of course assmuming that your running 64bit Ubuntu. If not then install flashplugin-installer instead.
