For some reason, flash doesn't want to be upgraded on my computer using Synaptic. If this also occurs for you, here is how to install the latest version of Adobe Flash Player (10.0.32) the Ubuntu way. Open a terminal and paste the following commands:

wget -c http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/multiverse/f/flashplugin-nonfree/flashplugin-nonfree_10.0.32.18ubuntu1_i386.deb
wget -c http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/multiverse/f/flashplugin-nonfree/flashplugin-installer_10.0.32.18ubuntu1_i386.deb
wget -c http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/g/gsfonts-x11/gsfonts-x11_0.21_all.deb
sudo dpkg -i gsfont*.deb
sudo dpkg -i flash*.deb

If you are using Swiftfox, also run these command:
rm /usr/lib/swiftfox/plugins/libflashplayer.so
ln -s /usr/lib/flashplugin-installer/libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/swiftfox/plugins/libflashplayer.so
