Is it just me or is the flash plugin still not fully functional? I'm 
running Firefox 3.5.7 with linux-f10-flashplugin-10.0r42 on 
8.0-RELEASE-p2, some flash videos work but many fail. For example BBC 
iplayer always comes up with a message "This content doesn't seem to be 
working. Try again later" superimposed over a still image of the start 
of the video. YouTube videos play but without any sound.
