Next thing you know, they'll require systemd, then M$-Windows. Le-sigh!

I don't know. Never checked yet. Or I never noticed. So for the curious

Code:
[email protected]:~
$ apt search pulseaudo
Sorting... Done
Full Text Search... Done


Just to make sure this laptop does not have the above installed. Now to go to youtube and play some music in Seamonkey.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=31kYXDJenSg

Yep. Sound loud and clear here using Seamonkey.

The thumbnail works for me. I got a feeling from chat that somehow your ~/.mozilla folder has some hinkey cruft in it from a site visit.

Got a screeny of the popup. Maybe we can show it to http://support.freeforums.org/index.php ... d6fc28571b

I am a registered member there so I can start a thread on the subject.
If you give me detailed ammo to post as far as what operating systems, machines, browsers, used.
I'll just quote you.
\Maybe we can start a new thread on that here also.

new-users-general-questions-f16.html

Since that section is the catch all for weird stuff like this.

regarding the screenshot:
When I passed through this topic earlier, I couldn't understand what roky was talkin 'bout
(i didn't see the thumbnail image)

This session, I do now see that thumbnail image
and so
I'm guessing that the {url}{img}imagebam.com{/img}{/url}
remote site serving the hotlinked image has been intermittently unavailable.
:confused: Unavialable to you, from there? Unavailable to me, from here? Server unavailable in general? Who knows?


Don't waste yer time inquiring with freeforums support. Sleazo ads n popups are par for the course.
