Since this is another instance, that assertion needs clarification:
I have had several NetBSD installation of desktop type in not so distant
past, and Firefox completed installation and ran on only on one of three
systems. I don't understand what is so fragile in it, but it happens to be
NetBSD installation. Such problems have never occurred to me neither on
Since the whole Flash issue isn't critical to me, I don't invest effort in it,
these days, it was several years ago may be, but not now. Today these things
should "just work."
I don't even think, that respective developers, who work on Firefox, OpenOffice,
GNOME, KDE and other huge packages put not enough effort. After some OpenOffice
patchwork I know how hard it is, it requires really heroic efforts. Nevertheless
all this doesn't allow me to proclaim Flash working.
I've seen recent Firefox update. Time to check.
