When I go to play a Youtube video it suggests I download the latest flash player. However, when I go to download the player it states that the latest version is installed, and won't let me download the player. Any fix's for this?

I thought maybe someone had made a better solution by now, but I can't seem to find it.

Moving the plugin manually from your Firefox installation should still work, though.

install flash player locally or re-install google chrome.

See this. It may help you.

But I was able to use Flash Player normally when I installed Chrome. I am running Ubuntu 10.04. The process explained there is a bit complicated. I'd suggest you try reinstalling Chrome.
