On my brother's linux Mint it's a computer fault not the browser. Both firefox and opera fail to open flash files. It's easy to lose sight of that when trying to debug the problem. :(
I seldom watch flash but when I do there has been no real problem - perhaps because so infrequent. I use flash-block for better control and to block flash adverts etc. I watch a lot of BBC programs but download them first with get_iplayer and view them in VLC.
