konqueror chokes on flash plugin
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:16 EST
It looks like Fedora 8 development (KDE) will come with konqueror which is
incompatible with Adobe Flash 9.0.48. Konqueror becomes unresponsive and has
to be killed. Firefox works fine with that third party plugin.
I don't see the problem with Adobe Flash 9.0.48. It works fine for me.
Ok, then explain which package I am missing in my installation from Fedora Kde

works, newer (beta) versions currently do not.
fwiw, see also http://bugs.kde.org/132138
Thanks for confirmation. This should be in the Fedora KDE Caveats.
Still, how come 9.0.48 works for Than?
Also, scanning folders enabled flash-plugin. How do I disable it now? Not so
More fresh references on the issue:
I will reopen the bug, because brushing this issue under the rug doesn't help.
A lot of people will be pretty disappointed in Fedora-KDE release 8.
By the way, Fedora 6 with KDE 3.5.7 and some gtk packages works just fine with
Adobe Flash plugin, so please - just let me know which package is missing from
KDE-Live CD so that can fix it. I know that I should be able to.
My apologies if you perceived closing this UPSTREAM as a brush off. Per,
"... bugs closed with this resolution are filed in the upstream bug tracker or
reported to the upstream mailing list. This typically includes almost all
feature requests and enhancements, and most bugs that we don't consider release
showstoppers. (moving a bug upstream typically increases the chance that someone
will have time to look at it, and often the upstream developer or bug owner even
works at Red Hat - moving things upstream simply allows us to keep everything in
one place, and work better with open source community developers outside of Red
Hat. We only keep bugs open on redhat.com to track our immediate short-term TODO
items, or issues with our patches/packaging, or because the upstream package in
question has poor bug tracking. The main focus of development for most packages
is the upstream community, even when Red Hat is a big contributor to the
We will certainly continue to track the issue at

Matthias, looks like we may be seeing a manifestation of
I assume our gtk2 doesn't include the workaround patch mentioned there?
Your assumption is wrong.
the workaround for the flash plugin was included in gtk2-2.11.6-9 or newer.
please upgrade to current gtk2 version in rawhide. Thanks
Thanks, it's good now.
Out of curiosity, why Firefox never needed any workaround in gtk2?
The problem only occurs when gtk has not already been initialized when the flash
plugin is loaded.
