Adobe do have an uninstaller - but all it really does is trash any Flash files in the Internet Plug-Ins folders of your Home/Library, and the main HD/library
Do check using Safari-Help-Installed Plug-Ins to see if you're currently showing Flash, and which version... some websites insist upon the latest version (not always with good reason).
The latest version of Adobe FlashPlayer can be obtained from here:
(You can check here: http://www.adobe.com/products/flash/about/ to see which version you should install for your Mac and OS. Note that version 10,1,102,64 is the last version available to PPC Mac users. The latest version, 10.2.152.25 or later, is for Intel Macs only, as Adobe no longer support the PPC platform.
You should first uninstall any previous version of Flash Player, using the uninstaller from here (make sure you use the correct one!):
and also that you follow the instructions closely, such as closing ALL applications first before installing. You must also carry out a permission repair after installing anything from Adobe.

I'm having a weird problem with Java in FireFox 3.6 today, anything java like YouTube is just not working, but it's working just fine in Safari. I haven't changed or updated anything and it was working just a few hours ago. Just gave the Mac a restart in case a problem have creped into the system. But no luck and like I said the pages work fine in Safari just not FireFox.
So I can only assume it's not Java but FireFox thats developed a fault?
