I used Firefox 3.6.3 on Kubuntu 9 without problems. Since the update to Kubuntu 10 is encounter problems with Firefox. One is that soms falsh sites will hang Firefox after showing the video. I discovered that http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/plugincheck/ still reports Adobe flash 9 instead of the installed Debian package of flash 10 (from http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/otherversions/ - Linux) "succesfully"

At first Firefox wouldn't work with flash videos. Now whenever I try to go to YouTube, it crashes. Whenever I try to view a video on break.com, it crashes. I have no idea how to get flash working in FF. It works in Opera, but not Firefox.

I am currently running the latest version of Ubuntu.

I've just been given the option to upgrade my Ubuntu Linux (from Karmic Koala to Lucid Lynx). Although the updated colour scheme and Fire fox look great, one annoyance is that the 'close window' X-icon has moved from the right-hand corner to the left-hand corner. As a right-handed person, my mouse pointer drifts over to the right-hand side of windows, so moving this icon from the right corner to the left corner doesn't make sense to me, as a right-handed person (~90% of the world are right-handed?). I know that there's almost definitely a keyboard shortcut for 'close window' but I would like to see the 'Close window' 'x' back in the right-hand corner, or an option/preference to put it back where it always used to be! (as far as I know...).

Running Firefox 3.6.3 on openSUSE Linux 11.0. Have reinstalled twice, including completely deleting the .mozilla profile. No effect. Clicking on the youtube address from Google will INSTANTLY crash Firefox totally. I have blocked all cookies from Youtube due to a problem with their "an error occurred" message in Opera and also blocked them in Firefox. I have also tried "Private Browsing" with no effect - still crashes. I am extremely upset by this situation. Also, when I access the full Gmail interface (instead of the embedded interface in iGoogle), Firefox ALSO crashes instantly. These are the two main Web pages I NEED Firefox to work for! This is utterly unacceptable and I see from Googling that MANY people have this problem. It needs an IMMEDIATE FIX!

I would like to revert to the recognised/updated version of 3.6 and completely remove all redundant packages. Mozilla only suggests removing the profile but I need that when the recognised version is allowed to run. Suggestions would be welcome.

Beginning with 3.5.3 and continuing with 3.6 and latest Ubuntu, the scroll wheel moves a website up and down, but the Page UP and Page Down keyboard commands do not work. After hitting key a second time, it jumps to the bottom of the page and the Up key takes it back up to the top. Also, a black flashing rectangle appears on the left side of the page. This will disappear when a blank space on the site is clicked. I thought installing the latest Ubuntu update and the latest Firefox might solve the problem, but it persists. Any thoughts appreciated.

On Debian installed SUN-JAVA6-JRE and IA32-SUN-JAVA6-BIN and vanilla Firefox 3.6.6

Followed instructions to create symlink libjavaplugin.so -> /usr/lib/jvm/ia32-java-6-sun-1.6.0.20/jre/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so in ~/.mozilla/plugins, but restarting firefox and about:plugins does not show Java plugin.

Also created symlink in /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins, and in firefox install dir /usr/local/firefox/plugins. but none of this solved the issue.

Please advise
