Flash Player seems to be missing in Firefox or Chromium

although it is installed and reinstalled.
In Synaptic Manager check to have installed flashplugin-installer  instead of adobe-flashplugin. If that does not work,
I SOLVED like this:
download ADOBE flash as archive (click to install go to website and try to get the tar.gz archive)
- unpack
- take libflashplayer.so file and put it in /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins ('gksudo name-of-file-explorer' to open in root)
- do the same in /usr/lib/chromium-browser/plugins
(try the same for other browsers if needed: works in Opera - /usr/lib/opera/plugins)

solution inspired from here
