comment Is Mactel PPA good stuff for Macbook Pro 5,3 with Ubuntu 13.04?
It's a very old PPA. I don't recommend using it. Fixes to a lot of issues are incorporated into Ubuntu now.

comment Error: partition table requires a separate partition for boot loader code (EFI issue)
This was what I meant earlier in the chat room. Just pick your EFI partition on your main disk as the bootloader location. According to Wikipedia, this may affect later firmware updates, but my mac was old enough I didn't really care (not likely to be any useful updates).

comment why won't youtube videos play but all other websites work fine?
Yes, a tough one! How about installing Google Chrome which has its own flash, to see how that works?

Do you have all your extensions off? Try starting Firefox in safe mode, i.e. firefox --safe-mode.

comment Replacing some characters in the previous command
To repeat the substitution, use :&, i.e. ^bad^good^:& will change bad bad bad to good good bad. You can keep stacking :& but after two probably you should use :gs as suggested.

Not to make light of your issue, but getting marked as dupe is not the only potential danger here... the other is getting marked as 'too localized'.
