My firefox/flash fails because flash uses a different LIBC version than firefox
(ubuntu 6.0.6 really must get round to making the other machine work,
and upgrading that one).
I dont see how you can have two libc versions active at the same time!
So you must have a different problem.

Maybe one can use the more recent but the other cant use the older version?
Then it would be LD_LIBRARY_PATH or something. try ldd and locate
