X error in Mozilla Firefox 1.0 on Gentoo LInux when running Flash


When I go to a site with Flash on it after I install the Flash Plugin, Firefox closes and gives me the following error:

"The program 'firefox-bin' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)'.
(Details: serial 80 error_code 8 request_code 146 minor_code 3)"

I didn't find any errors/warnings relating to Flash. Here's my Xorg.0.log:

Here is what I would do.
Code:
emerge unmerge mozilla-firefox or mozilla-firefox- bin
To see which one you have
Code:
emerge search mozilla- firefox
then
Code:
emerge ufed
ufed
then enable support for flash and java,then
Code:
emerge mozilla-firefox
mozilla-firefox works better for me than mozilla-firefox-bin,good luck

Hmmm. I followed your instructions, but I still have the same problem: Firefox automatically exits when it comes across a flash-enabled website.

Are you using the Composite extension? Well, in any case take a look at this:

https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1336

Try set that variable and run firefox.

Hope that helped
