I remember having that issue when I 1st started using Linux. I ended up removing the symbolic link for the 'flashplayer.so' file and reinstalling it with a freshly downloaded version. I also could have had to make a symbolic link for the 'flashplayer.so' in the browser's plugin folder. The file might be named differently and I don't remember the source location.

Symbolic link:
Ln -S <source location & file> <destination location of the file>

I'm not saying that's the answer for you, but it is possible. That file has always been the root of my troubles. Knock on wood, redoing that symbolic link has always helped me.

Supposedly Adobe no longer plans to support flash on linux. Dear web desiners, html5 is the way to go anyway.

Yes Adobe stopped supporting flash officially for linux but you can get the latest version of flash if you download and install google chrome. Sorry for forcing you into a new web browser.

As for your networking issues. Did you do an upgrade or a fresh install? Sometimes when settings are upgraded things go terribly wrong.

I think I found your issue here

you should be able to run a program called seahorse and remove your stoted key. You can also try creating a new user as it is probably a setting in one of your hidden home folders. The fun part is figuring out which one.
