Bug Description


I installed yesterday the new beta-version of skype 2. It works good, but when I have start Skype, my Firefox 3 or Firefox 2 flash videos (for example youtube-videos) doesn't work anymore. The video begin without sound and stop after 1 or 2 seconds.

Some other people have this bug?

Sala remove should fix this issue but it is known to cause crashing but it might have been fixed already. Flash shipped the fix in 9.0.124 release and we found that was holding this back, this is a dupliocate of another bug(maybe more like 30 other bugs) i will try to find it, its either on flash or on Pulse Audio cant remrember.

Please dont assign your self to bugs unles syou plan on fixing them, Mozilla bugs are important in that reason and IIRC bugs team stopped that practice due to noone knew who was doing what on bugs as i recall. I heard about it from someone since i was gone during the change back.
