    Exclamation Issues with flash causing firefox to crash

    Hey, so I'm new to this forum, but ain't new to linux/ubuntu, so I thought i could skip the "absolute beginner section".

    Anyway, so I was trying to install flash debug, which I managed to do. I was trying to figure out the source of a video that was streaming. Gave up, so then tried to get rid of flash debug. I reinstalled normal flash. But then on certain sites, like one of flash video (myspace and dailymotion for example), firefox would crash. everytime, without fail. so then i tried installing flashaid for firefox. briefly, it seemed it may have done the trick. I was wrong. So basically firefox always crashes when i go to certain sites with flash. kinda sucks eh...

    Anybody got any ideas of what to do? Maybe I didn't uninstall flash debug properly? My problem in general, is that I'm not very good in installing stuff manually, ie via the terminal, unless someone gives me a very detailed tutorial and holds my hand along the way....

    Cheers

    No?

    And for now, since noone can help me perhaps, I'm using greasemonkey for certain flash and video sites...

    I don't see anything wrong in your report.

    Try to disable hardware acceleration.
