    Problem with firefox and flash...or something

    Currently working in Hardy Heron. Uh I can playing streaming videos online after i actually click the video. In windows a "preview" of the video would be displayed then i would just hit play. Now i have to select the video in the middle to play because it is "grayed out with a big play button in the middle". I have the same problem with my flash. Btw, I have adobe flash player 9 installed and mplayer as well. Any ideas to get rid of these dang gray play buttons?

    Have you enabled the restriced reposotories via :-
    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Repositories/Ubuntu ??

    Then you type at a terminal
    sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree

    The purge coupled with the aforementioned alternative flash version install worked for me..ie. removed the big play button. Danke.
