I installed ubuntu a few days ago. I remember that Flash Player works immediately after instaling system. Now I was disappointed because I can't load a website that use this technology. What can I do to fix it? I use default internet browser - Firefox and Ubuntu 16.04.

I have this statement on the any website with Flash: "The Adobe Flash plugin has crashed. Please reload the page to try again."


Flash plugin is not installed during system installation. You have three options:

  1. Install flashplugin-installer by typing sudo apt-get install flashplugin-installer in a terminal window. This will install the flash plugin for Firefox.
  2. Install google chrome by downloading the package from google. Chrome is using pepper-flash which is embedded in it and will be installed with Chrome.
  3. Install ubuntu-restricted-extras by typing sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras in a terminal window. This package will install flash and a complete multimedia audio and video codec support.
