    Re: Howto Install 32 bit Firefox with Flash w/sound and Java for AMD64

    i just stumbled across this thread and i am curious

    why would anybody need to run 32bit firefox in 64bit ubuntu?

    i use 64bit ubuntu on three different machines, and have never encountered a single problem with 64bit firefox

    flash and java work great (w/sound)

    im not trying to sound ignorant, im just curious

    Question Re: Howto Install 32 bit Firefox with Flash w/sound and Java for AMD64

    Are you sure you're using 64 bit then? There is no such thing as a 64-bit Java web plugin, so I'd like to know how exactly you're able to run Java.

    I've never been able to get Java applets to load from HTTPS sites, even with the 32 bit Java on 64 bit OS.

    Well, for me it just doesn't work. It actually crashes my browser whenever I try to use an applet over https.

    Yes, Java, or the need for a Sun Java plugin is one of the last reasons to use a 32bit firefox. the openjdk is ok but it doesnt work for all sites yet. Sun Java does.
    This howto is real old, I started it with Dapper Drake. As soon as Sun releases Java 7 witch will have a 64bit plugin support for this howto will end.

    Personally I need it for the ability to connect to an F5 Firepass vpn. They do not provide plugins for 64b systems.

    Re: Howto Install 32 bit Firefox with Flash w/sound and Java for AMD64

    Klitz:

    Are you saying that now Firefox 3.0.2 4 bits installed simply from Hardy 8.04 Synaptic Package Manager should be able to play Adobe Flash movies (e.g. youtube.com)? In my case it does not work (but an aboutlugins shows .swf "Adobe Flash movie" as "enabled").

    On the other hand, Firefox 32, installed from your ff32_3in1_6294.tar script plays flash movies!

    Can you let me know if I am having an unusual problem and need to debug my Firefox 64 bits?

    Thanks

    No, this howto/script only installs the 32bit browser(s) and 32bit plugins for that 32bit browser(s) alone.

    I do have another howto, its a sticky post in the 64bit section of the forum. that deals with getting flash working on the 64bit browser. But it only deals with flash and no other plugins.

    when i use this script to install the 32-bit version version of firefox on my hardy 64-bit machine, the broswer window never comes up and heres what the output to the console looks like:
