Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I am using the tweak ubuntu one firefox 3.5.9
Sun Java Plugins
Is there a way to see why the bar doesnt appear.. here's something interesting..
when I do private browsing the chat bar appears when I do not use private browsing it is gone.. even more interesting it worked prior to adding ubuntu's updates. How can I find out the most recent updates? Def was to *lib*.
Should I provid you with the link where this isn't working?
And which add-ons (extensions) do you have installed? (Look under Tools -> Add-ons for the list.)
The interaction with the "Private Browsing" option suggests that your default cookie setting has the "Accept cookies from sites" option unset. (Look under the "Privacy" tab in the "Preferences" settings. The key combination <alt>-O should display your preferences settings.)
You might consider installing the 3.6 version of FF from the Mozilla site. The Ubuntu "tweaks" are, in my personal opinion, counter productive. (Or, if you want to visit the cutting edge, Firefox 4 beta is available for testing.)
As to your CSS problem, I think that's unrelated to your display problem, but you should send an e-mail to the managers of the sites delivering invalid style sheets so they can correct the problem.
That's where it is in the 3.6.7 version I'm running. IIRC, the older versions of FF had the "cookies" stuff under the "General" tab. Look around in the preferences settings till you find the cookies settings.
You still haven't posted the list of your installed extensions. Your first post suggests that you may have installed the Sun Java stuff, which may conflict with the IcedTea Java extensions used, by default, by Linux systems.
It sounds to me like you may not have all the video plugins you need installed.
Do you know if your computer uses a 64-bit processor or not and, if it does, if you're running the 64-bit version of Ubuntu or the 32 bit version. (The 32 bit Ubuntu will work on a 64 bit processor.) I ask because some plugins are only available for 32-bit applications.
