I suspect that cameo73 may be right about the flash problem being a
deal-breaker. The only time most of my friends see linux in operation on
a workstation is when I try to show them something I've found on
youtube. If you are in the habit of using linked in you will find that
the audio player rarely works. Where do many of my friends spend a lot
of their online time when they are not on facebook? You've guessed it.
So yes, this is an extremely serious problem that, if it is not solved,
will make it impossible ever to resolve bug #1.

At the moment, restarting firefox is such an inconvenience that I
usually open the page I want to see in opera instead if it is important
enough. If Conn's package means that I will only have to reload the
page, then that would only be a huge improvement and much less of an
embarrassment to Firefox and Ubuntu.

Until Conn's version is tested and released for both architectures this
bug should be marked as critical priority IMO.
