I have something that is completely beyond me, I can't figure out what is going on.
I'm currently running Mint 14 and latest version of Chrome stable but none of my flash plugin stuff is working as it should. Anything using flash (youtube, etc) shows a "couldn't load plugin" error. It was working fine earlier today and I've changed nothing.
Figuring something must have gone funny with a config, I deleted ~/.config/google-chrome and ~/.cache/google-chrome directories and then reloaded chrome.
I did not setup my google account so it wouldn't sync anything and everything worked... for about 3 minutes then the plugin errors started again.
I repeated the above, checked about:plugins url in chrome and it lists 10 plugins. I loaded youtube, it works fine.
A few minutes goes by (where I let the chrome sit idle) and flash problems again and youtube doesn't work. I check about:plugins again and the data has changed.. only 3 plugins are listed.
What is changing this plugins list? I have disabled sync and deleted user data files a few times and it still happens.
I've even created a new user account, logged in cinnamon as that user, loaded chrome and watched it happen all again.
I checked my apt logs to see if I've updated chrome, and yesterday I did so I rolled back to the older chrome version located in /var/cache/apt/archives.
It does it with older chrome versions also so I'm unsure what is going on.
I've even removed all flash plugin packages to see if there was some incompatibly issues with chrome's built in flash.. still problems!!
Anybody have any ideas, I'm all ears!
