I am a dumb newbie, please have mercy.
That said, I am having a real hard time with videos on Firefox and I am imagine that the issue may be with flashplugin.
When I start watching a video, everything seems fine, but after one minute or two the image and sound become choppy and, most important, everything gets soooo slow. The strangest part is that the whole system remains slow even after I close Firefox and try to kill any processes I find with top that seem to be consuming to much resources.
The system, and particularly Firefox if I restart it, then remains "semi-frozen" like that for several minutes.
Any ideas? Is it dangerous or non-advisable to replace mint-flashplugin with flashplugin-nonfree?
Thanks in advance for any assistance or information.
