Ubuntu 13.04 64-bit, interface freezes when running videos directly in the browser, leaving only the mouse pointer moving.

Behavior occurs with browsers Google Chrome, Chromium and Firefox.

My hardware:

Intel Pentium Dual Core G860

Integrated video processor (Intel HD2000)

Motherboard Asus P8H61-M LE BR

4GB DDR3 Dual Channel

I think something on the flash.

Welcome to Ask Ubuntu! Whilst this may theoretically answer the question, it would be preferable to include the essential parts of the answer here, and provide the link for reference. – guntbert Jul 7 '13 at 19:11

There was, literally just within the past few hours, an update to adobe flash player package.

Try doing..

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

.. and see if you see the updates come through. If so, that may fix your problem. If NOT, it's possible the update may have caused the issue and we can continue troubleshooting at that point.

Good luck, and let us know what you find!

EDIT: Also, within the past hour there's been a Firefox update. You may want to run this and get a list of what packages you update and make note if they cumulatively resolve the issues.
