    Re: The Linux/Flash problem

    Thanks Kurt, done and done!! I feel a test coming on...

    Edit: Ok, test completed: another partial success, some videos are warning free and others aren't but I'm satisfied.

    Thanks again folks.

    Whoops!

    My fingers were working faster than my brain that time; I did mean about:config but was also thinking about various plugins in the named config line and it all went to worms.

    Sorry about that.

    I have the same problem with an old desktop that is still quite capable of running 12.04 32bit, but doesn't have SSE2, I won't use FF or any of it's derivatives because they're slow, I don't use the machine because of this issue, how would I install flash 10.3? I only use Chromium or Chrome as a browser

    You just need to get a copy of 'libflashplayer.so' for Flash version 10.3 and put it in the subdirectory under your home: ~/.mozilla/plugins/

    Perhaps Flash 10.3 is more secure -- it has a date of 23 May 2013 on the Adobe website, and Firefox does not deactivate it or issue warnings when using it (like it does for 11.1).

    No idea
    I wouldn't really ever describe flash as being secure.
