With Firefox 6.0.2 apparmor profile enabled on Natty, Flash and Google
Talk can't access the webcam. If I put Firefox in complain mode, it
works but I get this kind of message:

[ 1856.852807] type=1400 audit(1317154329.250:137): apparmor="DENIED"
operation="open" parent=4390
profile="/usr/lib/firefox-6.0.2/firefox{,*[^s][^h]}" name="/dev/video0"
pid=4447 comm="npviewer.bin" requested_mask="rw" denied_mask="rw"
fsuid=1026 ouid=0

Best regards
