can't play Flash anymore

I'm quite perplexed.  I have two Etch machines, and on each of them, Flash
recently stopped working.  It worked on both within the past month.

I have these packages installed:
  flashplayer-mozilla   Macromedia Flash Player
  libflash-mozplugin    0.4.13-8       GPL Flash (SWF) Library - Mozilla-compatible plugin
  libflash0c2           0.4.13-8       GPL Flash (SWF) Library - shared library

and these files:
  -rw-r--r-- 1 root root     856 2007-06-19 20:31 /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/flashplayer.xpt
  -rw-r--r-- 1 root root   15348 2006-07-25 10:22 /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflash-mozplugin.so
  -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 7029820 2007-08-31 07:10 /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so

  lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root      37 2007-09-01 09:55 /usr/lib/iceweasel/plugins/flashplayer.xpt -> ../../mozilla/plugins/flashplayer.xpt
  lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root      46 2007-03-16 17:04 /usr/lib/iceweasel/plugins/libflash-mozplugin.so -> /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflash-mozplugin.so
  lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root      39 2007-09-01 09:55 /usr/lib/iceweasel/plugins/libflashplayer.so -> ../../mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so

  lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root      18 2007-01-21 09:33 /usr/lib/libflash.so.0 -> libflash.so.0.13.0
  -rw-r--r-- 1 root root  199996 2006-07-25 10:22 /usr/lib/libflash.so.0.13.0

If I do "about:plugins" from iceweasel, I see
    File name: libflash-mozplugin.so
    Flash Movie player Version 0.4.12 compatible with Shockwave Flash 4.0

    File name: libflashplayer.so
    Shockwave Flash 9.0 r48

But if I try to run any Flash movie, I get sent to Adobe to download the
"newest" Flash.  This turns out to be, which I already have.  For
the heck of it, I unpacked that anyway.  flashplayer.xpt was identical to
what I already have.  libflashplayer.so was not, but installing that didn't

As tests, I've been trying anything at youtube or at the Flash showcase:


Youtube videos all seem to fail, and then iceweasel crashes too.  Any ideas
what's gone wrong?  Thanks.
