FF has been segfaulting tonight and it appears to be caused by Flash. See this thread. Or, at least, Flash is involved somehow.
I thought I should start a new thread to ask about updating. I'm a recent convert from Fedora and some things are still a bit confusing.
So I tried updating the plugin yb going to Tools->Add-ons->Plugins and clicking "Find Updates". I'm told that my version (Shockwave Flash 10.0 r32) is outdated and so I head over to Adobe's site. They're offering "Adobe Flash Player version 10.0.42.34" and I select "APT for Ubuntu 9.0.4+". When apt-url launches, it prompts me to join something called the "9.10 Partner Channel". I do so and apt-url downloads 57 files, then announces, "Could not find package 'adobe-flashplugin'."
So, I'm wondering what the heck is going on here. Why would apt-url prompt me to join this package group if the software I'm looking for isn't offered?
Secondly, is there some other place to get this from? Like, Adobe, maybe?
I realise that I can download a tarball, but I'm pretty fresh with Ubuntu still and only a hazy idea where I should install things to.
