FlashPlayer 8 and Firefox
after trying to view pages with flashplayer 8, i discovered that macromedia has in fact failed to release any fp8 plugins for linux. not only that, but they dont intend to do anything till january 2007! :mad: @"!%$

ok, after calming yself, the only way i got arround this was emulating the windows version of firefox with wine, and then installing the windows fp8 plugin. the only problem is, wine gave a crappy sans serif font to firefox and it look hidious and hard to read.
here is a screenshot:

how do i change the font that firefox uses? i've tried going to tools>options>content to change the font style, but no other fonts other than serif and sans serif are listed :confused:

any help is much appreciated.

thanks in advance! :)

Well, to suggest the obvious: maybe you could install some more fonts in wine? This used to be possible back in the days of winetools, but I haven't used wine lately. I don't know how it's supposed to be set up these days, I seem to remember reading that winetools was not recommended any more.
