    Thanks VCoolio, adding !(name=firefox) to my compiz open animations fixed the conflict. I love when things work!

    This works for all of my 32bit systems, but not for 64bit. Any suggestions?

    Mine too. I just right clicked the video. Uchecked hardware acceleration to get it to work for now.

    Same here, but I added that line from VCoolio to run-mozilla.sh (the only script file in the installation folder) and it works quite well.

    This worked for me to fix when I was unable to close the full screen.

    Re: Firefox crash ONLY when clicking fullscreen youtube

    Very nice, this solved my problem.

    I primarily use Arch now. For Arch, since /usr/lib/firefox-3.5/firefox is a binary (and firefox has nothing in /opt) I just replaced the /usr/bin/firefox symlink with the script:

    Code:
    #!/bin/sh
    
    export LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libGL.so.1
    /usr/lib/firefox-3.5/firefox

    Now to run your browser make a launcher with as a command:
    sh /path/to/script
    Unfortunately, this has not helped with my firefox 3.5.1, installed from tarball.

    I have modified my start script, by adding export line, but with that change I am completely unable to start my browser.

    I am just getting

    Code:
    *** glibc detected *** /usr/local/share/firefox/firefox-bin: free(): invalid pointer: 0xb4e020a0 ***
    each time i try to start it and that's it.

    Any suggestions?

    ps. Turning off hardware acceleration works, but this is just a workaround.

    This issue is present in firefox till 3.0.3.

    It looks like Mozilla has clean hands here, but unfortunately nvidia or adobe don't try to fix it either.
