@grawity Nope. Clearing cookies and cache doesn't change anything. Its just the same. I think this question will be answered when we know why my Firefox started to display Gmail correctly once I synchronized my profiles.

To use the Panel -> Accessories -> Screenshot method, one needs to increase the delay above 0 seconds and click on the window. See here

Thanks for the prompt answer. That does it. Didn't want to meddle with the Magic SysRq key so changed the keyboard shortcut. And now it works!

comment Youtube videos play, not BBC, in Firefox. Chrome OK
@RandolfRichardson Thanks. But the problem seems now solved. No idea what the reason was. Just know the symptom -- the presence of two flash plugins. Reinstalled flashplugin from the Ubuntu repo and cleared the Firefox cache and cookies and restarted Firefox. And voilà! videos work. Now about:plugins shows only the 10.2 r152 plugin and BBC is happy.

@TuxRug Yes, I had installed both from the repositories. But things were working fine until a few days ago, and broke after an update. Moreover, the behaviour is not consistent across browsers or even within the same browser (Youtube fine, BBC not).
