Description Antonio Trande 2012-03-16 13:26:27 EDT
Description of problem:
This alert appears at every login into my google.com account or in youtube.com .

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

How reproducible:
Always using Firefox + Gnash-plugin.

Actual results:
If you believe that gtk-gnash should be allowed create access on the www.youtube.com directory by default.
Then you should report this as a bug.
You can generate a local policy module to allow this access.
allow this access for now by executing:
# grep gtk-gnash /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp
