Sorry for this post, but I'm tired. I have Linux/Ubuntu. I am using FireFox. A few weeks ago trying to view .swf in firefox has resulted in just nothing. Not a blank black nothing or a white nothing, just transparent where the player is supposed to be. Nothing is there. Any way to fix this? BTW, when Flash used to work it was a sluggish slide-show. It would be nice to see flash work as it was intended, on WinXP it's as smooth and fast as can be. Thank you.
