Unfortunately I think there are many more details that one has
to consider, such as CPU type and number of cores/threads,
OS version, and presumably firefox version as well.
Can you tell me more on the above ?

I had flash9 working once, but it don't remember all the packages
(and something was stale for sure); it got broken while installing
skype (a mail thread mentioned an issue with some shared lib version,
which was exactly the problem i had with skype. The fix was to
either create a symlink on a library or install linux_base-f10 to fix it).

An example of the URLs that is giving me problems is the following

(basically all videos from that site cause the same problem). I would be
grateful if you cold check it.
