    [all variants] Re: Canon CanoScan LiDe 25 HELP!!

  7. [ubuntu] Re: Firefox allows me to watch videos and upload pictures, but Opera doesnt?

    If you have got the relevant plugins for your videos etc. to work in FF, you use those same plugins in Opera. I assume that you are using Opera 9.52.

    [ubuntu] Re: What are the advantages of 8.04?

    Before you upgrade, be aware that for many posters on this forum 8.04 freezes randomly. The cause is uncertain, but seems to be related to the 2.6.24 kernel. See:

    Hours of fun trying to prevent a train crash, while the train goes faster and faster, and gets longer and longer. Hilarious! And very well crafted with excellent music.
