Flash not reloaded when using tabs in Firefox
Last modified: 2009-02-12 04:33:24 EST
Description of problem:
When I use multiple tabs in Firefox, when I switch from one to another sometimes I don't see Flash animations. I think Firefox can't reload the plugin, so I start from here.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
flash-plugin-10.0.5.3-release (i386) (from Adobe's repository)
Steps to Reproduce:
2.open some tabs to sites using Flash;
3.switch some times from one tab to another;
4.I can see a blank square instead of the Flash animation;
5.Reload the page: I can see the animation again.
Sometimes, I see that blank space.
I always want to see the Flash animation.
Do you use nspluginwrapper? If so the blank spaces are artifacts from flash plugin crash.
Could we get output of the command
rpm -q nspluginwrapper
Of course! Here you are:
$ rpm -q nspluginwrapper
So... I have to send this bug to Adobe, is it right?
Adobe claims flash plugin is not compatible nspluginwrapper so they refuses such report. You may live with this state or if you want to report the flash crash you have to remove nspluginwrapper completely and report whole firefox crash.
