ubuntu hardy firefox 3.6.6 freezes

After today's apt-get dist-upgrade on my hardy (ubuntu 8.04) machine, firefox would freeze almost immediately and had to be killed.

Turns out there are two copies of that can get installed, one by the flashplugin-nonfree package, and one by the adobe-flashplayer .deb package that adobe distributes.

sudo apt-get remove flashplugin-nonfree and then a reinstall of the install_flash_player_10_linux.deb from adobe fixes the freeze, and also upgraded me from flash9 to flash10.
