    This update fixes crashing after leaving a page displaying a flash video, browser slowdown when viewing a site with quirky flash, popups to source code from unsupported ads, and a host of other odd behavior, its a must download if you use flash on Linux.

          The same is true for the Adobe site. This "bug" has been there since Flash first appeared on Linux back in the Flash 6.x days. Flash "objects" appear to be on top of everything else in the site. I wonder if this an X or Flash "limitation"

            This problem is present with Gnash as well. It was brought up on the X mailing list just a few days ago.

              I didn't know Gnash also exhibit the same problem as Flash, I have limited experience with Gnash, but that leaves at least two common variables for the problem: The browser (a Gecko problem, maybe?) or the environment (an X11 issue?) .

                The problem is or was the browser you are using. Look at this bug https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=137189. This bug was fixed in July but I don't know if the fix has made it into Firefox.
