To add more confusion to this fray, although it may not help with gray 
screen issue, the only reason chromium works (yes, just install the 
nspluginwrapper as per the handbook) is that it is better suited to the 
new pepper style Adobe is going with now.

FWIW, I did put in a port to fix drm issues on any site which was 
stopping videos playing (again, not your specific issue, but what 
appears to be in discussion here) and which allows flash to work using 
any browser - uses linux dbus libraries (weird). Not sure of the status 
though.

Cheers
