View Full Version : [ubuntu] Problems with plugins?

November 15th, 2008, 02:40 AM
Hello I just installed 8.10 version on my son's laptop it's a Toshiba satellite A215, everything works perfect, just for some reason using firefox now hangs when it's trying to use something with flash, like youtube just stops working freezes and I have to force quit, is there something I can do to fix this problem?
What I am using now its Opera
Thank you

Have you installed flash plugin for firefox? Go into System -> Administration -> Synaptic Package Manager -> Search and type in flash. Then, click and install the flashplugin for your browser. Close Synaptic and open firefox again. That should take care of the flash plugin.

ha I thing I got it, playing around I just click on normal visual effects I unchecked the compiz effects System-Preferences-Appereance
Let me use it for a couple of days to see if that was the problem. Thank you
