No Sound Issue in Firefox Flash [Fixed]

I love Ubuntu but one thing was really pissing me off on my desktop computer: the very annoying No sound in Firefox Flash issue which I'm facing since I upgraded from Feitsy to Gutsy.

But tonight, because I felt frustrated again because of this issue, I googled it one more time, hoping to find something new. A few minutes later, I found a link to a How To Fix The No Sound Issue in Firefox Flash post in the ubuntu forums and decided of course to give it a try.

The post suggests to update the libflashsupport library with a patched version from Paul Betts who is a software engineer at... Microsoft working on hotfixes and updates for Windows :) Anyway, I just installed Paul's version and guess what: sound is now working again in Firefox Flash! Thank you both guys, this is so sweet!
