The thing is we made a change to get it working and without crashes - don't remember what though except that flash is run in a wrapper so it does not take down FF in a crash
Is it only Youtube?
Youtube is a problem with flash

It's not only Youtube I've installed Mint from Rev1 CD and can't see any flash content, only a gray box. videojug.com, speedtest.net all broken.

Btw, Mint is the best distro ever 8)

Oh, forgot to add something important, flash works just fine on Opera 9.5. Looks like this is a Firefox problem.

Me again :D
Flash works after reverting back to version 9. Version 10 beta apparently has problems with FF3

But how do I go about reverting to version 9? If I remember correctly, Mint came complete with FF3 and Flashplayer 10. I don't find v. 9 in the Package Manager though.

Version 10 beta apparently has problems with FF3

Which should be solved in the final version.
I can't remember what was done more than running flash in a "wrapper" so it does not bring down FF in a crash
