Default Flash replacement for Galaxy Note 2

Hi,

I recently bought a Galaxy Note 2. Great phone but with my carrier Sprint I'm unable to watch a lot of different videos and Flash Presentations.

Most of the time watch YouTube Videos is fine, but otherwise I get an error message saying I need a plugin.

I've tried the following with no luck, MX Player, Skyfire and Dolphin.

Thanks!

Artsup

Adobe is no longer supporting flash for any mobile devices, not just Android, and so it is no longer is available in the Play store. However, the Flash11 .apk package is still downloadable from the Adobe website for manual installation.

Flash 11.1:
http://download.macromedia.com/pub/flashplayer/installers/archive/android/11.1.115.34/install_flash_player_ics.apk

After installing flash, install Firefox or other browser that supports flash and you're good.

The Firefox browser has limited Flash support that's native to it

Flash works perfectly with Firefox on my devices. Why do you say it only has partial support?

Yes, it works for me as well, but I don't want to over-promise others when on Firefox's Google Play page they say that it's "Low Quality Flash"; at the time I downloaded this browzer back in the fall, they mentioned it as limited support, only it was all in caps on their page (at the time).
