and on the webiste from adobe flash it says:

You have version 11,2,202,285 installed

and then what do i do?

I think I removed flagh plugin-nonfree at this point.

I have reinstalled the flash again and it still doesn't work. Sorry for being completely clueless.

Re: The Firefox Lover's Mega Thread

At this point I am as clueless as you. smile Did you try it with a fresh Firefox removing your profile? Did Flash ever worked, did it work with another browser? Do you have a Flash blocker installed.

Re: The Firefox Lover's Mega Thread

Hello you 2,

open a terminal, try:

rm -rf ~/.adobe

and reopen FF. Maybe some dirty config file laying around wink

(Nothing bad will happen)

it didn't do anything.  I reopened firefox again and still nothing.  The funny thing is before I tried to install flashplugin-nonfree, everything was working, but now even after I remove flashplugin, I still can't watch any youtube videos.


so can you guys tell me how I can go back to watch youtube videos?  I dont want the flashplugin anymore.

And, I was redirected to this page when I tried to watch youtube

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/blocked/p330

so apparently they blocked the add on that I have.  I tried update it using the command line in the first page but it still doesn't work.

Re: The Firefox Lover's Mega Thread

Seems like  there is some bad interaction between the flash player from adobe and the plugin-nonfree.
Fastest way to resolve this is probably a re-install, followed by an install from the adobe site but no flash-plugin-nonfree, unless someone comes up with a better solution.

I see you are still using statler, based on Debian squeeze.
Perhaps this is an opportunity to install the new stable - waldorf - based on Debian wheezy.

Sorry for not being able to offer you a better solution,

Re: The Firefox Lover's Mega Thread

If you still want to watch Youtube, you do not need necessarily Flash, you can watch it via HTML5, here:

http://www.youtube.com/html5

Of course not all videos will play but most of them.

Edit: Have you enabled click to play maybe? You can disable it:

about:config

from the address bar in Firefox, then type:

plugins.click_to_play

double click and it will switch to false.

Re: The Firefox Lover's Mega Thread

Thank you for this. The Mint replacement one was really annoying, because they call it "Firefox" but went and made some pretty persistent changes to it...

Re: The Firefox Lover's Mega Thread

Woo hoo!  Happily running Firefox v22 under Waldorf with backports enabled.  Some things that I did that weren't covered in your how-to:

01) You may need to manually delete /etc/iceweasel/profile.  sudo aptitude purge iceweasel didn't remove that folder because it wasn't empty.

02) I went ahead and deleted the ~/.mozilla folder as well prior to unpacking Firefox, since it probably contained things specific to Iceweasel.

I kept mine without any issues. My mozilla profile is older than my Debian install. wink

Re: The Firefox Lover's Mega Thread

Hah!  Now I can give back to this wonderful thread.  The link that ivanovnegro provides for the 64-bit version of Firefox no longer works.  Here's the latest working link to 64-bit Firefox downloads (choose your preferred language):

https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org … ux-x86_64/

Re: The Firefox Lover's Mega Thread

I'm getting "404 Not Found" error.  Are you sure you're trying the 64-bit link and not the 32-bit link?  The issue is with the 64-bit link.

Edit:  Hmmm...that's weird.  I was getting the "404 Not Found" error in the Chrome and Firefox browsers.  I just tried the link in Midori and it worked fine.

Edit 2:  Just got the same error in the Opera browser.  Maybe Mozilla is having server issues?

Edit 3:  ...and got the same error in the QupZilla browser.

Just to say that the Stylish extension for Firefox has been updated to 1.4.1 and that some styles maybe affected: http://forum.userstyles.org/discussion/ … ox-1-4-1b1

Re: The Firefox Lover's Mega Thread

Now that Australis seems more likely to land in version 29, I wonder if there's any interest in collecting hacks/tweaks. Just to illustrate, here's a question about rearranging a bit of the UI that is no longer possible via the "Customize" pane: http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic … &t=2799365
