I'm running ubuntu jaunty (really kubuntu, but it shouldn't matter) with firefox 3.0.12 and adobe's flash 10 plugin, and I often have the problem that firefox freezes while I'm playing hulu. The video freezes, but the sound keeps playing, and I can't navigate firefox (e.g. I can't close the window, so I have to kill it). This only happens when I'm playing full screen or in a stand-alone window (not in the small embedded video in the web page, but I haven't tested this extensively).
- Is this a common problem?
- Any ideas for how to fix it?
- Right now, I can't reproduce the problem on demand, and I don't really know which component of the system is misbehaving (ubuntu/firefox/plugin). Any ideas for how to figure out what's going wrong?
