I asked this because I remember a similar case (also with Slackware 10.2 and Flash 9!) on a Dutch Mozilla-forum, where I am a member (and moderator).
Long story short: removing libflashplayer.so from /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins (if it's there) and only keeping them in ~/.mozilla/plugins did seem to work.
Don't know why...

Well it should obviously only be in one place or the other, not both or there will be trouble.

I think the first one is in user's home, and the second one is for Mozilla's installation as a whole. I'm not sure whether there's gonna be trouble (user's settings should override if they overlap), Mozilla should react correctly in this situation. But maybe that user had removed version 9 from /usr/lib/mozilla, and he had 7 in his home that could be the reason why things got fixed.

Well I see from you post's that 7 works so I dl'd it and will give it a shot. I did put the .so and .xpt files in the ~/.mozilla/plugins & ~/.mozilla/components directories and not in ~/mozilla/plugins & ~/components directories. Tex had made me aware of this earlier on in the post. I'm not sure If you guys have noticed but I did mention that w/ flash loaded in that it works fine as root just not as user. Is something loaded as root that's not loaded for user??

Thanks for all help and concern in this matter.!... most appreciative...

What are the permissions on both of the files ? (usually they should be 'chmod a+rwx,go-w' or 'chmod u=rwx,go=rx')

2) copy 'flashplayer.xpt' into '~/.mozilla/components' and also make it executable by 'chmod u+w,a+x flashplayer.xpt' (that also makes it writable by you)
3) copy 'libflashplayer.so' into '~/.mozilla/plugins'
This is what I followed from your post earlier on in this thread. What you just posted is different so maybe I should try one or both of them to see if it works.

Just to confirm that the Flash 7 option does seem to work. At least until I find a site that insists on Flash 9!
I hope that someone more experienced than me can find a solution that allows us to be up-to-date.

Probably upgrade to Slackware 11.0 ... unless someone has had problems with it too.

I think it can only be 2 things:

1) The mplayer-plugin (if you have it installed, get rid of it)
2) Incompatibility of Flash 9 with older kernels or libraries or something ... can't tell what. Upgrade to Slackware 11.0 or downgrade Flash to 7.

You can still get it here:
http://freshmeat.net/redir/flashplug...7_linux.tar.gz

You can also try swfdec ... not sure how many videos it will support tho:

Mine used to crash like crazy until I...

Code:
1. Make sure no firefox is running

2. Install only one copy of version 9.0.31.0 in /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/

-r--r--r-- 1 root root     856 2006-12-15 21:51 /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/flashplayer.xpt
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 7040080 2006-12-15 21:51 /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so*

Just cp the files in, don't use the install script.
Make sure there aren't any in ~/.mozilla/plugins/ && /usr/lib/firefox*/plugins

3. rm ~/.mozilla/firefox/pluginreg.dat
I haven't crashed in several months since I did this.

Aight Onedingo.. I appreciate the nfo and followed to the T and now no popups saying I need to dl flash for this site but I have noticed a popup for flash on another site. Why would it be good for some sites and not for others??

Sorry for long time in between responses. Just been working, moving and working on other things in slack.

Thanks for the help!!
