OK. I recently spent condiserable time because mplayer stopped working
on my system. In order to watch movies, I spent a lot of time getting
totem to operate correctly, which meant that I aalso had to figure out
the whole Nautilus mess. I absolutely HATE nautilus, but I managed to
get it to the point where it does not replace my xphoon background with
stupid colors. I have to start the "File Browser" after logging in to
my gnome desktop. I really want to nuke all of that nautilus crap, but
the hald stuff does work nicely.
Now, since totem USED to work flawlessly in firefox2, but it causes a
coredump in forefox3, that means that firefox3 is BROKEN. I am really
sorry that it took you 3 weeks to notice that firefox3 was broken, but I
noticed the firest day it was released and submitted a PR. Just because
you don't pay attention to it does not matter to me. I reported that
totem core dumps firefox3 immediately.
I cannot find any explanation anywhere which describes this so-called
manual process to install plugins. If there was an explanation
anywhere, I would follow the directions immediately and do it. No
plugins work in firefox3. Totem does not work. Gnash does not work.
No plugin that I can find works. Therefore, forefox3 is BROKEN. Either
explain how we can fix the brokenness, or remove firefox3.
I am really tired of watching the system coredump. I have submitted PRs
with debugging information attached. No one has responded to any of
them. Either respond to them and tell me how to fix the problems, or
