	I am on 9.10 64 bit now and the new firefox 3.5.4 really does 
show Utube things well. When I first looked firefox wanted to 
load some drivers which I let it do. Then the thousands of 
Utube things work. I do not know if this new firefox can read 
HTML5 but the new Utube with the President talking today seem 
very bright.
