Scrolling with Mouse wheel Problems with Flash in Firefox ( (Linux) + newest Adobe Flash Linux)


I have the problem that when I use my mouse wheel to scroll down a
page and happen to have my cursor come over a flash object, the
scrolling stops.

Obviously the mouse wheel commands are sent to the Plugin, even though
I have never brought it to focus with a click. The windows version of
Firefox behaves different in this matter. It allows continues
scrolling without stop.

The stop is very unsettling, especially if you don't use a mouse
directly but an emulated mouse.

First of all:  I don't want to install a flash blocker but rather find
a solution than a workaround with "additional" work at hand.

I would like to know:

a) What's the reason for the different behavior between Windows and
Linux Version? Is it because of the Browser itself? Is it because of
the flash plugin? Is the plugin rendered differently? Is it a problem
with the window manager (which is set to click on focus in my case)?

b) Is there some known method to correct this Problem directly, with
an extension or even changing of the source code?

I am asking here in hopes somebody has developer knowledge about this
problem and is willing to share it. I've exhausted my methods of
browsing the web, this newsgroup (the topic was mention in one or two
spots only, never to be solved) and even starting to look at the
source code. Before I dive into it and spend days looking for the
problem and not even finding it, I hope somebody has detailed

Thanks in advance,

firefox and download window problem
I am having a problem with the download options in the browser. Hope I can explain this correctly so it makes sense. I went to "options" "download" and tried changing it there for various settings with no change. Problem just started with 2.0.01 and unfortunately the browser updated to before I could stop it but problems still there. My other computer works fine with both versions so I think something got corrupted but don't know what or how to fix it. I don't want to uninstall FF and reinstall it and lose all my bookmarks.

Firefox & niggly problem
I just upgraded both my desktop and my laptop to FF v2.0.0.2 a couple days ago. Both began doing the same annoying thing. When I click a URL shortcut on my desktop or a link in my newsreader, an error box pops up saying "File http://blahblahblah or one of its components not found. Make sure the path and filename are correct." Then FF goes ahead and loads the page. This doesn't happen if FF is already running. If it's not running, it happens every time.

Macromedia Flash Player on Firefox 2.0 under Linux
I followed the internet links for downloading and installing the Macromedia Flash Player for Linux. After installation I see the file flashplayer.xpt and in the /usr/lib/firefox-2.0/plugins directory. Yet when I go to a site under Firefox 2.0 which needs the Flash Player, all I see is a little box for installing it again. I do not see any place in Firefox 2.0 where I can check and see what plug-ins are installed or any way I can determine what plug-ins are recognized and working correctly. Is there some way I can get this installed properly so that Firefox 2.0...
