I deleted the libflashplayer.so already on my husband's computer, and copied 
the ones on my computer across, including creating directories where 
necessary.  about:plugins in Iceweasel now displays exactly the same on the 
two computers.  We have exactly the same version of Iceweasel: 

Channel 4 catchup programmes, which play on mine, will still not play on his.  
It still says that an ad blocker is turned on, and I must turn it off. :-(

Something must be different, and I have just got to find out what.  If/when I 
crack it, I shall obviously share it.
