I just got through pulling the majority of my plugins back with amrecover, and
moving them to a /usr/lib/plugins that is a link to firefox/plugins, and the
lugins now shows a quite lengthy list including the java stuffs.
I can watch about 10 of the cnn video's, with good sound once I'd nuked that
busted pulseaudio, but somewhere around the 10th video in a row,
firefox-184.108.40.206 went away, to be replaced with its crash report form. It
has done that several times before when I was running FC6, now on F8, so if
enough of use submit those reports, it just might get fixed. I believe it is
a ff problem, not a fedora problem.
Has anyone installed the beta 3 of firefox? How is it working?
