I have my system sounds off, which seemed to help. Also, try the browser
as root, see if that makes a difference. Trouble shooting with a shotgun
here. You are using the flash lib file from macromedia? I stored it in
the /usr/lib/firefox/plugins/, /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/ and
~/.mozilla/plugin/ directories. Covering all the bases you see. Beats
the hell out of me why ~/.mozilla/plugin <---has no 's'? Resistance is
futile. Ric
