Fullscreen Flash/Firefox/nvidia 180.51 drivers = crash
 
Having the current stable versions of the nVidia driver, Firefox and Adobe Flash results in Firefox crashing anytime Flash is fulscreened.

Steps to reproduce: Using Ubuntu 8.10 or 9.04

Install the required packages to install the nvidia drivers, build-essential and the current kernel headers as I recall.
Download the current stable nVidia 32-bit driver and install
Download Firefox from http://mozilla.com extract the tar.gz to ~/firefox
Downlaod Adobe Flash from http://adobe.com in tar.gz format extract to ~/firefox/plugins
Code:

./firefox
Visit youtube.com and choose a video to watch e.g. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EG-izyXfFHI press the fullscreen button. Flash crashes taking Firefox down with it. Firefox's debug output from such a crash http://crash-stats.mozilla.com/repor...04?p=1#modules

If I edit my xorg.conf to use the open source 'nv' driver and restart the X server this is not an issue.

The system installed Firefox uses a workaround or a fix so this will not crash the Ubuntu install of Firefox.

Workaround
Code:

export LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libGL.so.1
./firefox

Bug report log is too big to attach it is @ http://dl.getdropbox.com/u/686313/nv...-report.log.gz

Poke, I understand that the interaction of three programs can be tricky but this is not just a case where I see this. http://bit.ly/SeKXl

Thank you for the tip.

This bug occurs since a long time...

In 2009, while cell phones display youtube videos in many formats, there is still no decent video player on Linux :-( (mplayer,vlc are rustic at best).

Flash is the welcome format, as the plugin is made by Adobe and works the same way on any platform. Besides this nasty bug of course...
