You're welcome .. if you ever get any messages that flash needs updating .. you know where to go now ;)

Personally I'd update it anyway, but up to you :)

You can also try the add-on Flash-Aid: https://addons.mozilla.org/nl/firefox/addon/flash-aid/.

This will help you removing conflicting Flash players and installing the correct flash player.

Is Flash-Aid tested as working in Linpus Lite on an Acer Aspire One?

I've purposefully put instructions for installing Firefox 7.0.1 and Flashplayer 11.0.1.152 in Linpus Lite, as the AA1 seems to be very sensitive to Firefox and Flash versions under Linpus Lite.
