Firefox 3.5.1 (Shiretoko) Crashes in Flash Vid Fullscreen

Postby EchoLynx » Mon Aug 03, 2009 6:49 pm

This problem has been going on for a while, but I've not had the time lately to post about it. Ever since I upgraded to Shiretoko (When do I get "Firefox" back anyway!?) if I ever wanted to watch say a YouTube video full screen, I've had to use to Firefox 3.0.x to do so. If I tried it in Firefox 3.5.x, then Firefox would crash. According to MintUpdate my computer is up to date, and as far as I know my video driver is in it's latest version as well. I'm really clueless in this one.

EDIT- I had found this post concerning a similar problem, but I'm not sure they're related. viewtopic.php?f=47&t=30558&p=175982&hilit=fullscreen+firefox#p175982 I ran Firefox-3.5 from the terminal, tried the fullscreen, and got this output upon crash.

Code: Select all

sudo gedit /usr/lib/firefox-3.5.1/firefox.sh

Somewhere after the "#!/bin/sh" line and before any other non-comment line, add the line

Code: Select all

export LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libGL.so.1
