Hi,
I've jut started using linux seriusly for the first time and I've found it amzingly fast campared to windows I had just a few isues installing my scanner but now works perfect.
The only problem that i have is with the flash player I can watch youtube I can see pages but when I try to use megavideo or similar streaming pages works really slow and it doesn't work in full screen plus crashes the plugin.
what can I do?
thanks for your time!!

Please provide the output of the following commands and instructions. This will make sure I will have a good understanding of your Firefox and Flash installations, so I don't need to guess what might be happening to your system:

1 - Flash Version

Type about:config in Firefox address bar, then type plugin.expose_full_path in the filter, then double-click the same item in the results to make it true. Then type about:plugins in the address bar, find Shockwave Flash, copy the corresponding Path and Version and paste here. it should look lie the image below:

2 - Firefox version and architecture

To find Firefox version and architecture, click "Help >> About Mozilla Firefox" in the menu. The info will be located at the bottom of the info dialog:

I disabled Shockwave from the Firefox Add-ons. Now, these plug-ins have disappeared from the menu and from the list in about:config of Firefox.

If I try to re-download and reinstall them, I get a message that they are already installed.

How do I re-enable them?

Your flash is installed manually under the ~/.mozilla/plugins folder. I would suggest installing it system wide, from the repositories.

Get FLASH-AID (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/161939/), an extension to remove conflicting flash plugins and install the proper version according to your browser architecture.

Also make sure you have the latest video driver installed. Go to "System >> Administration >> Hardware drivers".

Also check the Flash Optimization (http://firefox-tutorials.blogspot.com/2010/05/flash-optimization.html)
