    Yep - I'd when woken up a bit decide that too.

    No update nor downdate to any video/graphics here - just an update to FF5 for some reason ...

    and then BAM - things on the screen ...


    I mean don't get me wrong I can Alt+Lft. Mse to move things if I need to so I don't see the flyiy things

    I'll check the hardware in the meantime - just had to add to the FF% is bad nonsense

    I always make sure that my browser's are .00001s faster than last time just so I can see it

    Try a clean profile (but don't delete the old one). See http://www.webgapps.org/tutorials/fi...es-and-backups

    Let me know if a clean profile works, so we can pinpoint the culprit.

    ps - that all looks possibly sarcastic - it is not at all meant like that.

    The little flyiy things just brought out the May 2007 in me I'm afraid.

    (Probably the first mod to ask how to bump a thread in history ... )

    Unhappy Re: Firefox 4, 5 & Beyond Mega Thread

    I just wished Ubuntu updates didn't include the latest versions of Firefox. The only difference I see between FF4 and FF5 is that videos are barely watchable due to those black squares, and that Moonlight isn't compatible with FF5 anymore.

    I mean, it's nice to have new stuff. But having new stuff just for the sake of being new isn't always the best thing.

    I'm not using moonlight but everything I'm watching is great to say the least. More info is needed to see what your problem can be. GL
