Description Julian Sikorski 2007-09-20 12:15:40 EDT
Description of problem:
When flash plugin is used through wrapper, the browser crashes. Using the flash
plugin natively works fine.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install the above software
2. Set up the flash plugin to be wrapped 
3. Go to http://web.playmobile.pl/pl/play-abonament/index.html
Actual results:
browser crashes

Expected results:
no crash

Additional info:
Flash plugin is the latest beta from adobe labs. I set up the plugin wrapper with:
/usr/lib64/nspluginwrapper/npconfig -i /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so

Oh. Sorry for the dupe. I was having some problems with bugzilla.
Comment 3 Martin Stransky 2007-09-21 02:39:54 EDT
you're right, it crashes for me, too.
Comment 4 Martin Stransky 2007-09-21 06:10:37 EDT
Anyway, you should install your plugins by "mozila-plugin-config" utility... but
it doesn't matter for this bug.
Comment 5 Julian Sikorski 2007-09-21 06:20:38 EDT
I know, but mozilla-plugin-config installs them into
%{_libdir}/mozilla/plugins-wrapped, which requires rawhide firefox, and I run
Fedora 7 here.
Comment 6 Martin Stransky 2007-10-04 10:24:23 EDT
Can you please check this package? 
It's w/o the plugin restart support and it doesn't crash for me.

Comment 7 Martin Stransky 2007-10-04 11:00:49 EDT
F7 binary packages are available at http://people.redhat.com/stransky/mozilla/
Comment 8 Julian Sikorski 2007-10-04 11:30:20 EDT
it's better now - no crash indeed. The newer flash itself crashes, though, but
this report should go elsewhere. Thanks for fixing that.
Comment 9 Martin Stransky 2007-10-04 11:37:57 EDT
Unfortunately it's not fixed :( I just removed one important feature :(
