    Flash is crashing Firefox!

    Running Ubuntu Feisty

    Firefox works just fine until I go to YouTube or other Flash-enabled site and then it freezes and I have to force quit it.

    I'm pretty sure I know why this started happeniRunning Ubuntu Feisty

    Firefox works just fine until I go to YouTube or other Flash-enabled site and then it freezes and I have to force quit it.

    I'm pretty sure I know why this started happening. While I was in Europe with my laptop, the power converter and my laptop's AC adapter were not playing well together, causing my laptop to spontaneously shut itself off.

    So, that's not good.

    Since then, YouTube, etc. freeze completely. I have reinstalled Flash Player to no avail.

    Much obliged,
    Joe

    If you have spinrite, use that.

    If not, or secondly, use fsck off of a livecd to check the drive out for soft errors.

    Thanks, but I do not have spinrite. How do I update Firefox? How do I find out when 2.0.0.7 is going to be available on the Ubuntu repositories?

    2.0.0.7 only fixed a Quicktime player error. It may not fix your problem, but maybe it might.
