Kubuntu/Ubuntu Firefox 2.0 Flash Bug May Be Causing Crashes

If you use Kubuntu/Ubuntu and Firefox 2.0 you may have noticed problems with Flash enabled web pages
causing Firefox to crash. Interim solutions are here
and a forum thread about the problem is here.

The interim solution is:

In the /etc/firefox/firefoxrc file, insert this line:

Code:
export XLIB_SKIP_ARGB_VISUALS=1

If that doesn’t work, you may try:

1. Comment out the composite section in x.org
2. Change your color depth to 24 bit, if you haven’t already

YMMV. Insert disclaimer here.
