I've got the following problem, I am trying to start Quake Live on Firefox 17 under Ubuntu 12.10.

I downloaded the plugin, which installed correctly, downloaded some maps... But when I try to start the game, I can only hear some garbled music and that's all. I cannot see anything from the game, like if the plugin has crashed.

Before anyone tries to say this is a clone, no it's not. How do I play Quake Live? doesn't even come close to my problem... Also, it seem that Windows and Firefox combination work for some people.

My question is:

1) Does anyone has a Quake Live running, at least on Firefox 17?

2) If not, where should I start digging to check the logs/debug to see what's actually going on?

I'm having this problem too. I don't have specific answers to both of your questions but I can suggest a workaround by using qlprism (http://www.qlprism.us/). This works beautifully for me (I added a shortcut to quake live on my Unity bar).
