Description Emanuele Bellini 2009-02-09 11:09:15 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- (i386) (from Adobe's repository)

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.open Firefox;
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.

Actual results:
Sometimes, I see that blank space.

Expected results:
I always want to see the Flash animation.

Do you use nspluginwrapper? If so the blank spaces are artifacts from flash plugin crash.
Comment 2 Matěj Cepl 2009-02-10 09:22:39 EST
Could we get output of the command

rpm -q nspluginwrapper


Thank you
Comment 3 Emanuele Bellini 2009-02-11 16:48:01 EST
Of course! Here you are:

$ rpm -q nspluginwrapper

So... I have to send this bug to Adobe, is it right?
Comment 4 Martin Stransky 2009-02-12 04:33:24 EST
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.
