Fist of all my any of my browsers are not able to write on email...I write but the text is not there text when people gets it is an empty mail.

Also on my browsers was not working at all adobe flash player. It would
appear that my flash was not working or that my java script was not
working. I face the same problem on my Ubuntu before, but I resolved
easy. This time I have took several totorials and done a lot on
research and after downloading a script and debuging in a few things
that wont work (I lefted the script in plain text form in the
attachment and also at the end of this mail) . Apparently would work on
debian and as a last step on my browser on KDE debian Icewaese I put
about:plugin to browse for the plugins and and they were there as the
tutorial said they would. So I did I quick search on a flash toturial
on line and it appears now only a grey square where the video soppouse
to be. I know I am close and I have done it before on Ubuntu but this a
good chance to learn more about Linux.... So can you please point me at
the right direccion please??

Do I need something with flash?
is it that my computer is a 62x2 amd ?
Is it something with the Java script??

Regards and thanks in advance for helping me with this issue
