I installed the Flash plugin in Firefox, and certain sites don't do what they should because certain things don't know they are being clicked on. Anything I can do about this? Will another plugin work better?
You're probably affected by LP #410407
This usually happens when you are using the 32bit plugin on a 64bit system. If this is the case, then you need to edit the npviewer file.
Open it with the command below:
gksudo gedit /usr/lib/nspluginwrapper/i386/linux/npviewer
Then add the following line before the last line of that file:
The file content should look like this:
#!/bin/sh TARGET_OS=linux TARGET_ARCH=i386 export GDK_NATIVE_WINDOWS=1 . /usr/lib/nspluginwrapper/noarch/npviewer
Save the file and restart the browser.
Alternatively, you could use the preview version of the 64bit plugin as already suggested.
That's probably a problem of flash,try installing gnash or lightspark.
Gnash is in the repositories
If you're using Ubuntu 64-bit, you might solve your problem by installing the (not yet officially finished) 64-bit version of Flash. Anyway, that's how I solved my problem of some mouseclicks not being recognized.
Then copy libflashplayer.so to: /home/"username"/.mozilla/plugins (replace "username" with your username)
If the folder plugins isn't there yet, you have to create it.
Hope this will help.
Just install the Flash-Aid plugin. It will choose the flash version for your browser version. It worked for me even when adobe said that they will not support flash for FireFox anymore. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/flash-aid/
