Comment 3 Chris Campbell 2010-05-22 13:47:30 UTC
Problem here occured in the swfdec flash plugin. Unfortunately, that plugin is no longer actively supported. Due to this, swfdec will no longer be included with Fedora, from Fedora 13 on.

You may continue to use swfdec and live with the problems, or uninstall it and use either the closed-source Adobe Flash plugin or one of the few other open-source Flash plugins.

Or, if you are a coder, perhaps you could take over updating/fixing swfdec... :)
