[SOLVED] May have contracted malware. Yes, malware. Firefox on Ubuntu Fiesty. Seeking a fix
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 11, 2008
Barely post-newbie, came to linux from Mac and then Windows, have been using Ubuntu almost exclusively for just over a year. Good brain for problem-solving, still on the steep side of the Linux learning curve, and a mostly cook-book level of CLI use.
Asus mobo, 1.6GHz, 1.5GB, Intel 32, running Ubuntu Fiesty (7.10), and Firefox w/Adblock, Fasterfox, NoScript, and Ubufox extensions (I think it's version 126.96.36.199, but I'm not sure, and I don't dare open it to check the version, as it will probably mean shutting down the box for ANOTHER hard boot. I have recently had a very occasional BIOS beep code for "video ram or video card problem", but it's an older box, and I've been living with it. I don't think this is related to the current problem.
I was tired, chasing down info about HTML, and allowed NoScript temporary permission to run a script on a site that seemed harmless enough, and wasn't loading the content promised. Got a

flash videos extremely choppy in Firefox on Ubuntu 12.04
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 24, 2012
I recently installed ubuntu 12.04 on my netbook asus 1215b. I have two browsers installed. Chromium and Firefox ... Chromium works perfect with youtube videos , but firefox (the default browser) cannot play youtube videos, they are very choppy in fullscreen on firefox. I tried different solutions ... like downloading flash directly from adobe, using adobe beta , using gnash ... even using flash-aid ... but none of this has worked. videos are still very choppy even at 240p.
Does anyone know whats wrong or how to fix it. because I think i am on edge as I have spend 3 days just trying to fix this problem and I dont know how long could i take before switching back to windows.
Firefox java plugin problems [SOLVED]
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 12, 2009
I'm having problems viewing an applet in Firefox. I've read many posts on this forum that seem to have got me a little closer to my goal, but I'm still stuck with the "Start: applet not initialized" error when trying to access the applet.
I'm running 32-bit Firefox, with the Sun java plugin on Ubuntu 9.04. To get to this point I have run the following commands:
sudo apt-get install sun-java6-plugin
sudo update-alternatives --config java (selected the option to make sun jre my default)
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun-188.8.131.52/jre/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so /home/joe/.mozilla/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so
Now, when I visit http://www.javatester.org/version.html I get the java version shown as:
Java Version 1.6.0_0 from Sun Microsystems Inc.
The signed applet here: https://auth1.forsakringskassan.se/necs/bidlogon.jsp also seems to work (I get the java securty message pop-up, and when I accept this, the applet launches).
However I'm still unable to view

[SOLVED] Installing 32bit Java in 64bit OS
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 17, 2013
I'm using CentOS6 64-bit but need to install a 32-bit JRE. Unfortunately running a .bin and an rpm.bin fail early in the process. What's the best way to do this?
How to Install 32bit Java in 64bit Mepis8
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 31, 2009
I want to test some 32-bit .so files that are designed to be called from a Java program. That only works if Java itself is 32-bit. I want to do the tests on my 64-bit Mepis8 system. (Note, this is a large stand alone GUI program written in Java. It is not Java script invoked by a browser or anything like that.)
I assume there is no way to do this correctly with Synaptic, especially without disturbing my existing installed 64-bit Java.
Should I try to get and install 32-bit Java binaries direct from Sun, or should I download a 32-bit Java .deb file from a Mepis or Debian repository and manually unpack it?
In Mepis7, I installed some 32bit packages by manually unpacking .deb files, dragging each file to directories of slightly different names than their normal targets (typically changing "lib" to "lib32"), and redoing all the symbolic links (which don't seem to survive the manual unpack process correctly).
That process is pretty easy for a small self-contained

Ubuntu 64bit 10.10 kernel 2.6.35 CPU MTRRs Issue
- date: February 24, 2012
First post here on the forum. I would like to report an issue with Ubuntu 10.10 on 64-bit kernel 2.6.35 that is not present in 10.04 LTS 64-bit on kernel 2.6.32.
I have a Gigabyte GA-970A-UD3, AMD FX-8120 CPU, 16GB DDR3-1333 RAM, nVidia GTX550Ti and an OCZ Agility 3 120GB SSD. The BIOS reports 16GB RAM installed.
When I installed Ubuntu 10.10 to get the later kernel with TRIM support for the SSD, the OS is only reporting 3.2GiB available instead of the 15.7GiB I am expecting.
Research has revealed the following from dmesg (relevant section bolded):
