i absolutely needed flash in ubuntu-based firefox. could not find any official way to install it, so had to resort to installation of "ubuntu restricted extras" package via "ubuntu software center". that seemed to have done the trick, as i am able to see a flash page being properly rendered....but only for a moment, as i get automatically redirected to the adobe site for the typical flash download prompt. further examination of the firefox add-on list shows no flash player present, explaining the reason behind the aforementioned redirection. so what are my options at this point? is there a different way to install flash that would prevent the redirection? or is there perhaps a way to turn the redirection off?

thanks!!!
