I started using Ubuntu at least a year ago. I have been using linux for longer. I have tested other distros recently too. As far as I know, Ubuntu is the only linux distro that has this problem.
Firefox often crashes when viewing flash applications: especially youtube.
I have given Ubuntu a chance. I waited at least 2 release cycles, possibly 3 if I remember correctly and still this bug has not been fixed.
Congratulations Ubuntu. You fail.
I understand this may not be Ubuntu's fault specifically, but I still look to them to provide a reasonable solution.
This is a well known bug. I'm pretty sure it has been a well known bug for some time.
It is unacceptable for a major distribution, and arguably the best alternative to Windows, to have this bug go unfixed for 3 releases.
P.S. I really don't care what the excuses are. I simply expect better than this from Ubuntu. I shouldn't have to wait a year and a half for this bug to be fixed. It's still not fixed now. Please fix it.
That is all.
