Re: Mozilla will automatically disable all plug-ins in Firefox

it is not going to be good if they block the 10.x version of flash player.. lots of people have problems with the 11.x version of flash player when using it with "firefox"..

look at what mozilla support says for solving problems with flash player.. over and over and over again they say the solution to all of the problems is to use the 10.x version of flash player:

»support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/ado···-crashed

i have only heard one person say that they didn't have problems with using the 11.x version of flash player with firefox, and i have to wonder if the reason is that that one person never tried using flash player to watch videos, where all they saw it used for was to generate a graphic on a webpage..

Flash 11 on Debian Linux running like a champ on this laptop. Then again, I use Chromium(based on Chrome without the GoogleWare). 1080p videos are silky smooth on its somewhat lowly HD4200 graphics but fairly powerful cpu.

The current version of Flash 10 is 10.3.*, so that is not being blocked (currently).

Did you manage to get video acceleration going on that 4200? Or is the processor doing the work?

Got video acceleration. Requires kernel 3.2, Gallium3D(both in backports, gallium is built into the xserver update), and DRI2). You can get 2D with a stock install and "radeon" driver and a little 3D. This gives you 3D. For both scenarios, I needed the restricted firmware(stable is fine for "radeon" driver but backported version needed for Gallium3D to make hardware acceleration work with Open source drivers. Not sure if Flash acceleration was working with "radeon" as I only kept it for a bit and the Gallium3D does work with Flash acceleration. Word of warning, a bug with kde and the driver means you better use xrender mode to avoid corruption when going from full screen opengl to the desktop.

A fool thinks they know everything.

A wise person knows enough to know they couldn't possibly know everything.

There are zealots for every OS, like every religion. They do not represent the majority of users for either.

all versions of flash have issues w/ FF going back so far i can't remember........if one just hits the re-load ........from the browser reload.....it works fine.......i have my u-toob playlists running all day long........

w/o issues........FF is a memory hog..........however

eventually you may experience a mem dump..........

granted...it could system and processor resources.........but itz not an issue w/my box.........i'm an update junkie........as well

a clean box runs better........guaranteed.......
