comment “Shockwave Flash is known to be vulnerable” warning
ACK on that, however, it's still possible it was dropped in the 'unsafe, prompt to run' category previously too, was overridden, and then that was forced again. Not sure, but i've seen that too recently. (I am a strong supporter of killing Firefox Flash anyways, but eh)

comment “Shockwave Flash is known to be vulnerable” warning
Your note about the Firefox disabling Flash due to recent vulns isn't the only reason though, and has applied for the Linux side since they discontinued newer versions because Version Num < SomeVal. True, the recent major vulnerabilities have pushed this to ALL current versions of Firefox and such, however this issue of Flash not being enabled has been around since before the latest vulns. The solution is to update it (which we can't do since there's no new plugins since Adobe pulled support), or use Chrome (and either chrome itself or the firefox wrapper that uses Pepper Flash)

I know Firefox disables the plugin because it's old, and their code wants to see a more recent version - the way around this is the wrapper plugin which utilizes Chrome's Pepper Flash plugin instead of the old Linux native plugin for Flash.

comment Nam file (Segmentation fault)
We aren't a coding site? It sounds to me like this is a failure in code. And given 'lab1.tcl' you're trying to complete a programming lab. Wrong location for that.

Close Voters: I am considering the other question abandoned, in favor of this one, as the answers on the old question are entirely out of date and the question hasn't been updated in years. I would strongly advise not closing this one as a duplicate, or to extend the discussion into Ask Ubuntu Meta for more community discussion.

@user68186 then I may cross-post, however this question and the other one ask the same thing, really. Given it's out of date, I'll leave this here, and mods can do whatever the hell they want with it.

@Boris I know two french people, four russians, a korean guy, a chinese woman, and five spaniards who have no issues reading english posts, even wall-of-text ones, when properly formatted to make the headings known. (They're also not english-as-a-first-language people either) So perhaps it is difficult for you, but not the community at large.

@Boris what you prefer and what's permitted on the site are therefore in conflict. There are many many examples of multiple solutions in an answer, strewn throughout the site. There's a reason I made big bold headings - so the people who care to read that section can. Books, instruction manuals, etc. do the same thing. There's ZERO need to bloat the question with two answers. Your approach would be for that of a poll or a forum. That does not fit with the Q/A style format here. (We typically have one answer from one individual, not multiple answers from one individual here).
