i've done some research at mozilla and adobe and tests with both recent LTS-versions (14.04 and 12.04) and i'm pretty sure it is just a numbering problem of the flash-plugin! to make a long story short: if you open in firefox "tools" - "add-ons" - "plugins" respectively look at the mozilla check and you've got version 11,2,202,425 (notice the commas!), you ...

original script only works if firefox self backgrounded. You obviously have different environments.

Since Adobe no longer supports Flash on Linux, Chrome is one of the remaining options that ships with Flash included. You can use Pepper Flash (called "Fresh Player") on Firefox. Webupd8 even commented on it here and how to get it working (the linked article was posted on May 29, 2014 and may be out of date). The plugin may be usable as it seems to be ...

I had this problem on my laptop today, which I had upgraded at some point from Ubuntu 13.10. It turns out the problem was that the adobe-flashplugin package had no updates, but this was due to the file /etc/apt/sources.list having a reference to saucy still for the partner repository. Editing this file and changing these instances of saucy in the file to ...

I don't know for certain if this would interfere with updates or not, but immediately I can see that the repeating error is caused by having your update repositories set to include the original installation cd-rom.

It seems your repository settings have some problems. Run /usr/bin/software-sources. This program configures package repository. You can see 'Additional repositories' tab. You can uncheck 'cdrom:[Linux' after clicking that tab to avoid "CD-ROM" message. Then, choose 'Official repositories' tab. And choose proper 'Mirrors' with labled 'Main' and 'Base'. ...

Despite the names, Adobe Shockwave and Adobe Flash are two different programs/plugins. Adobe Shockwave isn't available for Linux, whereas Adobe Flash is available for Linux. You have both the NPAPI version of Flash (which all browsers except Chrome(ium) use) and the PPAPI version of Flash (which Chrome(ium) uses) installed.

I use this firefox addon Biscuit to save specific cookies I don't want deleted. It stops them from being deleted automatically by firefox or via the "Clear Recent History." I'm not positive if it could prevent a cookie from being changed by it's own website (facebook) but it's worth a try.

Firefox seems to randomly use any one of the installed dictionaries. Several English dictionaries get installed by default in Ubuntu.

On Ubuntu Linux, removing the dictionaries from the system for non-US English fixes this problem. sudo apt-get remove myspell-en-au myspell-en-gb myspell-en-za hunspell-en-ca && sudo ...

Found a fix here: In my testing, using the Avahi preferred solution of changing the mDNS domain to something else, I did indeed regain the ability to resolve .local hosts from my VPN, but I effectively lost use of all mDNS devices because (I presume) they weren't also changed to advertise in that same replacement local zone.
