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 can't seem to watch videos from Fox News. I can from all the other news sites. I am able to pull up video from Fox using Opera, just not FF.
I have searched the web for an answer - installing Greasemonkey and a Fox Friendly script to no avail. I do not use noscript, but I do use AdBlock. I even tried disabling AdBlock but that didn't work either.
Konqueror does not work for Fox either. And during my search, solutions were from 2007 thru late 2009 - nothing more recent.
And all your comments help this person out how? He is here looking for help, not some jerks looking to diminish what he watches. I do think you all owe him an apology.
Well, if mlangdn was offended then I certainly apologize - there was no intent to offend. On the other hand, there was no name calling or personal denigration before the use of the term 'jerk'.
I think the humorous intent of the above posts was self evident and I would hope that the limited but (almost) always good natured humor expressed by memebrs of this forum does not become a matter of contention.
Sorry I could not provide a useful answer mlangdn.
I knew as soon as I posted that I would have to suffer through some political "humor". I don't mind the mindlessness.
Yes, Flash is installed. Like I said, it works with Opera, and I can watch other news site's videos, plus youtube, plus anything else I've tried in FF - just not Fox News.
Oh well, the more I use Opera, the more its appeal. I'm just gonna have to skin it properly to make it easier to look at.
It was working with those specs here. It's now working under multilb as well with a 32 bit ff and flash 10.1 rc. I don't know that any of my extra codecs even work with this 32 bit version so I don't think that would be it. Do you have any special cookie or privacy settings?
No to special settings. Straight off the shelf defaults except for fonts and size. It's not a big deal since Opera works. I also have a problem with dishnetwork.com when trying to pay the bill. Opera works fine there. Another one of life's mysteries. I'll revisit this problem someday.
No problems here with Fox videos -FF 3.6+nobinonly-0ub, Flash 10.0.45.2-1, Opera 10.10.4742.gcc4qt. This is on a new install of Ubuntu 10.04. I am upgrading FF to 3.6.3 now and will see if I have problems.
No problems with FF 3.6.3 either.
