I suggest using apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree in order to install 
the flash player. For Squeeze you might need a version from squeeze-

But in case you did use something else to install the flash player get rid 
of that first.

For some stuff gnash or lightspark might be okay, last weeks I test again 
with them and too much stuff still was not working nicely. So take care 
that your flashplugin-nonfree is selected:

merkaba:~> LANG=C update-alternatives --display flash-mozilla.so
flash-mozilla.so - auto mode
  link currently points to /usr/lib/flashplugin-nonfree/libflashplayer.so
/usr/lib/flashplugin-nonfree/libflashplayer.so - priority 50
/usr/lib/gnash/libgnashplugin.so - priority 10
/usr/lib/lightspark/liblightsparkplugin.so - priority 0
Current 'best' version is '/usr/lib/flashplugin-

flashplugin-nonfree is the Debian way to install Adobe Flash.
