Default Midori and Flash

Hi there!

I am using all kinds of web browsers. Firefox for sites I always want to
have open. Konqueror when I start a browser from scratch to look
something up. Chromium is also running, Mainly because I had trouble with
Firefox opening one window on another desktop.

Now I'd also like to use Midori, as a lightweight browser for using
Google+. The reason is that when I open Google+ in Firefox, I am
also logged in at Google when I using other tabs with Youtube or other
Google sites. If there's a way around this, I'd be happy to know about
it. But so I just thought, why not use Midori for Google+ only. But it
doesn't do Flash.

The FAQ says I have to export MOZ_PLUGIN_PATH="/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins"
or wherever my plugins are, so I did this, using
/usr/lib/firefox/plugins, which looks right to me. But still Flash does
not work. How is this for other Midori users, is Flash working?

I think, if you go to your account settings in Google, you can tick a
box that allows you to sign in to multiple Google accounts on the same
computer at the same time.

Perhaps that will prevent auto sign-in across tabs.
Perhaps that will mean you have to create a dummy account for youtube
and other google services.

(Some how it brings to mind the guy who wanted the frequent shopper
benefits but did not want to be tracked, so he shared his frequent
shopper card's barcode on the internet and several hundred like-minded
individuals started using that same barcode.)

In Firefox you can create multiple profiles. Each profile will have
its own set of cookies, bookmarks, history, saved passwords, etc. To
open 2 firefox windows with 2 different profiles at once, launch it
with:

firefox -P -no-remote

There are firefox add-ons such as cookieswap to maintain separate sets
of cookies and sessions that you can toggle, instead of needing to
logout and login you just swap cookies then open youtube or
whatever...

As mentioned already if you're using Google services, they support
multiple sign-in on most of their sites now (recently added to
Youtube), so you can easily switch between accounts.

There is another Firefox addon called Yoono that claims to give you
per-tab session profiles but I have not personally tried it. I don't
like the way their website looks and the whole thing seems kind of
Windoze-spammy-looking to me, but maybe I'm just overly paranoid.
Maybe I'll try it in a VM with wireshark and see what it does.

On Symbian/Maemo/MeeGo phones there is a Qt/WebKit-based web browser
called MobWebMail which is specifically designed for Gmail. It has
multiple cookie sessions support built in, very handy to switch
between accounts and never need to logout or login in the process.

I could swear I downloaded the latest tar.gz from Adobe, created ~/.mozilla/plugins, and threw the libflashplayer.so file in there without any problems. Been it's been a few months since I've had Midori installed.

I had read about this somewhere. ~/.mozilla/plugins/ was already existing
(I had played with creating my own plugin using Qt), and I made a symlink
to /opt/Adobe/flash-player/flash-plugin/libflashplayer.so. But no success.

I used to get some errors in the terminal when starting midori manually,
like these:

Not depending on the value of MOZ_PLUGIN_PATH I specified. Now all I get
is this:

Well, I have more important stuff to do at the moment, so I will deal
with this later. Thanks all four your input, I'll also try using
different Firefox profiles, if Midori just doesn't work for me.

Thanks Paul, that's what I am doing now.

I'll have a look into this when I have some time. Although I tend to
never find time once I have found a workaround...

And I will suggest setting each profile to use an obviously different
colored theme, to avoid any embarrassing moments when you post
something under the wrong profile.
