In line with nuking iceweasel...I downloaded the new FireFox 4 beta and
did a simple local single user install to my home directory. downloaded
the new adobe flash player 10.xx from adobe & likewise created a plugins
dir in the local install: copied the driver there & VOILA all works &
BLAZING fast. I will use it like this until the software folks catch up
to my hardware system. Its a beast running a 6core AMD 64 bit processor
with twin 2GB ATI video cards running in crossfire mode.
Thanks for all the advice. BTW I'm running a mixed squeeze/sid
system...Lots of room for issues. LOL!
