Installing Gnash screws up Flash.

That is the core of the problem that needs to be fixed.
There's no reason the two shouldn't be able to coexist peacefully so
that each user on the machine can choose which flash player she wants
to use.

My initial difficulties are mitigated a bit. Some web sites work; some don't. I think that both Gnash and Flash can be installed at the same time. Which is actually running, I am not competent enough to know.

The order of installation seems to matter. Installing Gnash, and then (re-)installing Flash caused most embedded videos to play properly. I have not tried Flash-based UIs, like Flash games.
