Which is what I did. The 22 hours - more than that now - is on a machine
that I only use for testing, so no time wasted.

I have same Firefox, flash is 10.0.32.18-3.1. Nspluginwrapper and mplayer
are not installed. That’s 11.2,

I’ll try that - Blimey! That was weird. Just got switched to the login
screen. Session hadn’t crashed but the system just decided I’d be better off
elsewhere. Switched back OK so no harm done.
As I was saying before I was so rudely interrupted, I’ll try that. Firefox
has always been a bit flaky with its plugins - at least it has for me.

As a retired meteorologist, I’d agree with you but then I’m biased.
