If you both have the same version of the adobe-flash package, then
it's crystal clear that there must be some other version of the plugin
that's interfering. Probably something that one of you installed by
hand, either globally or locally (on her home folder). This is one of
the reasons why I would advice against the advice someone gave you
above. Installing things by hand is not a good thing if you plan to
forget about them as the time passes by.
What I'd do.
First make sure you don't have installed some other flash plugin via
portage, check that swfdec, lightspark and/or gnash are not installed.
If they are, uninstall them. After that, use this command to see where
your plugin lives and if there's some other in some alternative place:
$ locate libflashplayer.so
Ask here if you are not sure about the output. Also, note that there
can be plugins installed locally under ~/, so if after the above you
can't still find the 6.x plugin that's causing the mess it might be a
good idea to run something like
$ find $HOME -name libflashplayer.so
And see what happens.
