Flash and the Internet

Postby gabemorris » Sun Sep 02, 2007 3:46 pm

Hi. When I use any web browser and I am, say, watching videos on Youtube. And I do not stop playing the video before I leave the site (back, foward, exit, etc) Firefox, Epiphany, Opera, Swiftfox, and Galeon will all lock up and then crash on me. This also sometimes will happen while I am listening to music on various sites (Deezer, Myspace, etc).
I am at a loss why this is happening. It never happened in Windows, Ubuntu, PCLinuxOS, or SAM Linux when I watched Youtube videos.
Any help would be appreciated, I don't want to wipe and reinstall unless I have to :)
PS: I have 2GB of RAM, AMD Athlon 64 3500+, and an nVidia 6100 128mb internal graphics card

I can't repeat this error.
Check that you have the latest versions of the programs involved especially Flash and check settings
I don't think you could blame the OS for it, in this case Mint
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
