    Mozilla or Firefox?
    I think it's actually Firefox.
    Can you post a link to video? You'll need to remove the htt://www part but post the rest of it.

    Firefox.

    Do you mean post a link to the video that doesn't work? Its any video on facebook or hulu or any random site with video. Except youtube.
    In example, the hulu banner on the main page.

    I might be mistaken here, but I think the newer versions of Flash that are available require FireFox 4.0 or greater.
    Have you already applied all system updates after installing?
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade

    After running your first line I got:
    E: Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

    on the second line, nothing happened - no upgrade or anything
