This worked for me too. After unchecking hardware acceleration I can now watch youtube videos full-screen with flash 10 on FF 3.03 without freezing. Thanks Jan-C!
Disabling hardware acceleration doesn't seem to increase CPU usage any, at least in the few minutes that I have been playing around with it.
Jan-C,
Just out of curiosity, do you have a nvidia video card? and are you using the driver from nvidia? I wonder if the fact that some people experience the freezing in FF 3 with flash 10 and others don't might be related to the video card driver they are using?

@ tommcd,
Glad it worked. As for your questions,
1) Yes I have, and yes I am.
2) Canīt speculate on the reason, I just tried the only available option and it worked... Good question, though, I wonder if anyone who have two different card/driver can verify or reject this?

I've found a problem with the new flash 10 under Window Maker. (I'm still running firefox 2 - haven't tried 3 as I don't have it installed).

If you go to a page with a flash video on it such as youtube and right click and bring up the settings menu, the popup box appears to lose focus and you can't interact with it. XFCE's Window manager works fine so its definitely another WindowMaker issue like the last one I had with flash.

I was hoping that the Window Maker project would resume development, but other than partially restoring their website back in June, there's been no visible activity since. I guess I'm just going to have to change to XFCE or maybe fluxbox.


Other than that, Flash 10 is working great on my system and seems to run a little better (more responsive, less cpu heavy) than Flash 9 did.

XFce works for me, I love it. I'm running FF 3.0.3 from current on my Slackware 12.1 system, it runs light and fast.

I used slackbuilds to install the latest flash as well as the latest Opera (9.61) but the latter doesn't detect flash in the /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins directory, even though libflashplayer.so is there and nowhere else. The settings in Opera seem right: Preferences->Advanced->Content->Plug-in->Find New only turns up the SVG plug-in, which is in the same place.

Any ideas as to why this is the case?

Flash under Firefox works fine while I've never had it work with Konqueror.

Thanks all ...

I installed flash 10 by copying libflashplayer.so to /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins. I just installed Opera 9.61 using the Opera installer (not using the slack build) to install Opera to /opt. Opera detected my flash 10 just fine. Opera 9.60 worked ok with flash 9 also.
You could try symlinking the Opera plugins directory to /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so to see if this gets Opera to detect flash 10. So on my system it would be:
Code:
# ln -s /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so /opt/lib/opera/plugins
Adjust the above command according to the directory path you have Opera installed in.

In my system opera just wonīt load flash plugin10 if seamonkey isnīt installed, i tried. Tried also symlinks to opera plugins and firefox plugins but no joy. With seamonkey installed, it fired up well. Iīm not an expert here.

I have slacky.eu packaged opera.

For what it's worth, I have Seamonkey installed also. I never tried Opera without Seamonkey installed, so I can't say if it would work without Seamonkey or not.

Out of curiosity, for those of you with seamonkey installed, what's in your /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins directory?

Opera detects: libmozsvgdec.so, of which there is also a libmozsvgdec.la file, but does not detect libflashplayer.so, of which there is no .la file. I tried making an .la for libflashplayer in case Opera was looking for one but it didn't work. There's also an undetected symlink to libjavaplugin_oji.so.

The mplayer plugin was installed using the slackbuild script from slackbuilds.org.

Well the only difference -- besides mplayer -- is gxineplugin.so. I don't have it, but it isn't relevant, right?
