Re: Need Help Ubuntu 8.10 falling apart
You might have changed permissions on folders from root to the user? I tried this about 3 or 4 years ago, thinking it would make life simpler so I didn't have to "sudo" into things all the time... I was wrong.
However, if everything else seems to be working, I'm not sure. Does Totem, itself, run fine? If not, try running it from the terminal with/without "sudo".
Or maybe the plugin for Firefox wasn't installed correctly. Try removing and adding it using Synaptic.
