Hello! I have not yet tried the fix mentioned above (will do so directly after I post this), but I thought I'd mention that I've noticed an oddity. I use Linux Mint, currently using LinuxMint 16 (petra) and 3.11.0-12-generic. I use Xfce for my desktop UI. I have Chromium and Firefox installed. I had a previous version of Iron installed, but when I tried to update it to the latest version, I found that the launcher claimed I was trying to run the old version of Iron against the new version's settings. So I used Synaptic to do a complete removal of Iron, then I re-installed Iron using GDebi.
Iron now works fine, but aside from the flash-playing problem that other have noticed, there's another peculiarity. I have both Chromium and Iron available on my small launcher at the foot of the desktop. If I launch Chromium, all works as one would expect, and I can watch news videos on the BBC website fine. However, if I then use the Iron launcher, I actually get another instance of Chromium - and again, flash videos are playing fine.
If, however, I close all browsers and launch Iron, I get the Iron browser, and flash videos do NOT work. If I then select the Chromium browser, I get Iron again! And this is despite their being called from different places. I presume it's to do with both browsers being based on the same sourcecode.
Can someone tell me if it's a good idea or not to have both Chromium and Iron installed at the same time? Unfortunately, I'm not terribly knowledgable on the technical side of things - perhaps slightly more so than the average computer user, but only just.
Anyway, as this is my first post here, I'd like to thank the SRWare team for their excellent efforts, and I look forward to the flashplayer problem being sorted out in Iron!
