So many forums claim any flash/java support within Firefox on the AMD64 platform is impossible, but (as usual) there are 100 nay-saying fools for every one person who knows what's up. I only wish there was a way to reach all the disappointed people who turned their backs on Linux and Ubuntu out of frustration over this issue. I just might have to mirror this. Thanks! Great work.
    Thanks, I agree I have to constantly point people who say flash wont work here. The FUD is all over.

    kilz, thank you so much for the tremendous package. I used this how-to a few months ago, before you wrote the scripts, and got everything to work with little trouble. This time it was an absolute breeze. Great stuff!

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

    In your Firefox32-flash-java-mplayer-3.tar.gz script is the 4 & 5 lines really correct?

    sudo dpkg -i ~/Desktop/ffinstall/firefox32/firefox32-1.5.0.6_amd64.deb
    sudo cp -r -p ~/Desktop/ffinstall/firefox32/launcher/* ~/Desktop/

    shouldnt it be
    sudo dpkg -i ~/Desktop/ffinstall/firefox32-1.5.0.6_amd64.deb
    at line 4 and the 5th line i dont know what that is supposed to do?, i could be wrong tho
    Maby you should also include how to install w32codecs for wmv9 playback in your hotwo.

    Looks like I need to do some editing. The launcher shouldnt be there. The newest .deb file includes a launcher in the menu. The old one didnt. Thanks for pointing out its still there, version 4 will remove it.

    Thanks for all your effort with this.


    I am ahving dome trouble and would appreciate any suggestions anyone might have.

    After installing Firefox32 I am having some odd graphics bugs.



    As you can see above, the dividers between the tabs, as well as all radio buttons, check boxes, scroll bars, etc. are all missing/blank/grey.

    This does not happen with the 64bit version installed with apt-get.

    I also did this on Breezy without a problem, but now in dapper I am having issues.

    Does anyone know what might be wrong, and how I might fix it?

    Thanks,
    Matt

    mplayer plugin almost works

    When I click on a trailer at apple it displays the mplayer plugin logo and starts buffering but always stalls at 99%

    I made sure I am the owner of all the plugins under firefox32 and I do have the latest version of mplayer installed, I use it a lot.

    Is there anything else I should check or is there a general methodology to use to diagnose this problem. Everything else worked like a charm, Thanks

    Never mind. I uninstalled mplayer and then ran the script and it works now. Everything worked. Thanks a bunch.

    What happens if you click on System >Preferences >Themes. Then click on Theme details and chose another control set?

    Cool , perhaps it just didnt like that version of mplayer, I know the script instlls it to so you should still have it.
