Hi Ian, 
flash player is installed and works correctly on Firefox.
Mono webbrowser uses libgluezilla that is based on Mozilla engine.
I've tried webkit too but it gives a lot of errors and flash doesn't
works so I think that libgluezilla is better.
In Mono examples there are IEClone and UsingWebBrowser example.
Flash doesn't work in either so I think it is not so easy
to run flash on Mono webbrowser.
