If you are using Google chrome, it has pepper plugin build in and no need of any other flash player installation. For other browser we need to install flash player separately. Fortunately, flash player is there in Solus repository. Open Software Center and search for ‘flash-player-nonfree’. Click install…  :)  :) Please restart your Firefox browser after installation.

EDIT: Now latest flash player can be installed via Software center third party section. Make sure you uninstall flash-player-nonfree if already installed, before installing late
