http://ubuntuforums.org – Hello everyone, The problem I am experiencing on my laptop (HP Pavillion zv5000) which runs UbuntuStudio 9.10 (this problem also occurred with Ubuntu 9.10, before I upgraded to Ubuntu Studio) is that whenever I view a video on Firefox, be it YouTube, Metacafe, and generally any site where you can see online videos, the video glitches a lot, and after a few seconds Firefox grays out, and is not responsive, which means I either have to Kill Firefox. I am running Firefox 3.5.7 with the Ubuntu Firefox modifications 0.8 pack added. In the preferences, on the content tab the Enable Java button is not ticked. The following is the list of plugins I have on Firefox: DivX Web Player 1.4.0.233 Enabled IcedTea Java Web browser plugin 1.6.1 Disabled Java plugin 1.6.0_15 Disabled Quicktime plugin 7.2.0 (Totem 2.28.2) Enabled Shockwave flash 10.0 r42 Enabled VLC Multimedia plugin (compatible Totem 2.28.2) Enabled Windows media player plugin 10 (compatible; Totem) Enabled Thanks in advance for your help girls and guys, hope I didn't tire you too much.
