[Bug 231679] Re: Have to restart firefox to view flash content

I first encountered this problem back in Hardy (amd64 then and ever
since), and I still got bitten by it in Karmic Alpha 5 time and again.
Flash is bad enough as it is, but with this erratic behavior nuisance
becomes sheer torture. My guess is that nspluginwrapper is the culprit
here. The Flashblock add-on (oblig. IMHO) might be another suspect,
altough that doesn't seem very probable to me.

Anyway, installing the native 64-bit version of the Flash plug-in seems
to have fixed this issue for me. Officially it's still in alpha, but so
far I've had no problems with it at all (apart from Flash still being
Flash and the plug-in still being non-free software, but that's a
different matter).
