No Forum videos on Firefox since Update Pack 6 [Solved]

Postby rdonnelly on Fri Dec 21, 2012 3:17 pm

For some reason video on forums display as a black box, I can watch videos from Youtube, but not the ones uploaded to forums? They work fine from Chrome?

Just realized that I can not view thumbnails of attached forum images, I can see the thumbnails, but I can not click on, and enlarge them?

I gave up on FF, always seems to have something broke, so I am going to stick with Chrome.

Yeah, I got 11.0 d1

Update is available in tar, yum and RPM? No Deb.

I used to be able to install RPM but no longer PM shows I have RPM and YUM installed?

if you stick with chrome you'll get the newest flash (11.5.31.5 at the time of writing)
as you can see http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/ and http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/ 11.2 will be the last version (outside chrome) to support linux.

you can update to the last supported version (or close 11,2,202,251) installing flashplugin-nonfree from synaptic (this package will update flash to the latest supported version in linux, basically at the moment only bug fixes)

going back to the beginning prob. chrome is the easiest option :mrgreen:

It does not seem to doing the DL and install? Do I need to interact with it some how to make it do this?

try this
Code: Select all
sudo dpkg -i --force-overwrite /var/cache/apt/archives/acroread-debian-files_9.5.4_i386.deb

then
apt update && apt dist-upgrade
if in the end of those 2 commands the output is clean, you can try again
Code: Select all
apt install --reinstall flashplugin-nonfree

close FF, open it again and see in about:plugins the flash version you have now

I think Google does do better Linux support, where Mozilla is better with windoze, even my Thunderbird Lightning calender has a bug where the alarms wont fire. This was fixed a long time ago in the windoze version, but still not addressed in Linux. My Thunderbird work around is refresh the calender every 15 minutes.

FF has had problems more then once with updates, Chrome never seems to have problems so far?
