    Default firefox (3.0.1) no longer showing graphics: PROBLEM SOLVED

    hmmmmmmmmm
    I had a series of files on a CD as .wmv files; I checked to see if I could play them; Mplayer would not load, but kaffeine did;

    I wanted to convert the a .wmv file to .avi file to edit it;
    I found a script with "mencoder" and ran it; it was a large file that was converted, but it went well;

    as I closed down the terminal, I saw as an aside a gnome prompt that made some comment about "flash" running slow, and did I want to disable it; I believe I said no, and closed the comment;

    when I tried to open a new website on Firefox, it would not display graphics, and now even on the Google home page, the Google insignia does not show; I seemingly have flash-plugin-9.0.124.0-release.i386.rpm installed;

    I typed in aboutlugins into firefox, and it insists that flash is enabled;

    as I was about to post this, I went into Preferences for Firefox; under Content, the "Load images automatically" had been disabled by the script; (not me); by selecting this, images load again;

    Interesting. Thats the very first I've every read of this ... I don't think KDE has such quirks ... still, ... its a useful thing to consider for those who have flash problems.

    Reference your .wmv files .. I am surprised mplayer does not play them. If you get the chance, and if mplayer still does not play them, I would be curious as to the output of:
    file sample-file.wmv
    where 'sample-file.wmv' is one of the .wmv files that mplayer will not play, but kaffeine will play.

    Also, per this curiousity of mine, what is the output of:
    rpm -q kaffeine MPlayer libxine1 w32codec-all libffmpeg0 xvid && rpm -qa | grep x264

    Thanks for sharing your solution!

    I don't think it's DE specific but rather the conversion tool doing checking and setting this? Maybe check on what "mencoder" does and how it does it.
