Re: LM13 mint-flashplugin-11 needs update

Is the mint-flashplugin-11 no longer maintained in Maya? If so many will be vulnerable in their Firefox browser with flash player. Yes replacing the package is a workaround but should that be necessary with a LTS release? Most people rely on the update manager for security fixes. Hopefully we will s...

Are there plans for a Linux Mint version of Firefox for Maya? I sure hope Maya users get a better Firefox too.

Re: Firefox keeps crashing lately?

Okay so his/her flash is outdated. The issue still exists with flash player disabled and using HTML 5. Can anyone please report back with similar issues with Youtube using HTML 5 with Firefox 40.0 on 32 bit? Thanks

Re: Firefox keeps crashing lately?

I'm also suffering from this. Firefox will stop responding when watching Youtube videos in HTML 5. I get around 5 minutes into the video when this occurs. The video will continue to play but after that I have to force close the browser and start over. I'm using Maya 32 bit with Firefox 40.0.

Re: Firefox outdated plugins ...

Since the upgrade to Firefox 35.0.1 I'm getting "Firefox has prevented the outdated plugin Abobe Flash from running". This is on Mint 13 (Maya) with mint-flash-plugin 11.2.202.438. Hopefully this will get fixed soon.

The current forum software works great. Why something else? Don't risk losing all posts with years of great knowledge for something that looks a little newer. If it ain't broke don't fix it. :wink:
