Description Stan Bubrouski 2000-10-27 06:10:16 UTC
Newer netscape-common packages come with macromedia's official flash plugin
already installed in the plugins directory and after installing the flash
package the about:plugins screens says both plugins are being used.  This
seems to cause the browser to freeze on some pages that contain
java/javascript and .swf files.  I would recommend users remove the
official plugin before installing flash...although the official plugin
actually seems more stable and works better.  Any ideas?

Comment 1 Tim Powers 2000-10-27 13:25:02 UTC
I agree with everything that you have stated. I will issue an errata today
stating that the flash plugin included in Powertools should not be used with
netscape-common-4.75-2 or later packages since netscape-common already includes
the flash plugin.
