    Iceweasel crashes when use full screen in You tube


    I couldn't get anything in You Tube a couple days ago. Then I updated to flash 10.1 and then 10.2. They will let me watch the video, but Ice Weasel will crash when I try to go Full Screen. I can watch the videos on my Xp partition, so wouldn't think it is the graphics card. It's:
    01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV6 [Vanta/Vanta LT] (rev 15)

    Appreciate any help to get this working.

    Hi JoeS,

    How to update flashplugin

    As root following the commands below, full set of instructions can be located on the www, but I just can not remember where!!


    # echo "deb Index of /debian lenny-backports main contrib" >> /etc/apt/sources.list

    # wget -O - http://backports.org/debian/archive.key | apt-key add -

    # aptitude update

    # aptitude install flashplugin-nonfree


    I hope this is of help.
    Sometimes all you have to do is just wait...

    That gives me the same flash as the beta version 10.2 d151 that I downloaded from Adobe Labs Adobe Labs - Adobe Flash Player 10.2

    I also updated the driver for my graphics card from Nvidia:
    nVidia Corporation NV6 [Vanta/Vanta LT] (rev 15)

    Is there anything else I could look at?

    Is there anything else I could look at?

    Build identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9.1.15) Gecko/20101028 Iceape/2.0.10

    Is what I run instead of Iceweasel.

    My plugin is Shockwave Flash

    File name: libflashplayer.so
    Shockwave Flash 10.1 r102

    My libflashplayer.so sits in /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/flash-mozilla.so
    and is symlinked to /etc/alternatives/flash-mozilla.so
    which in turn is symlinked to /usr/bin/iceape

    Mine does not crash on fullscreen in Iceape. browser aka (Seamonkey)
