I'm running Linux Fedora Core 5, and the latest standard versions of Firefox and Adobe Flash plug-in. Flash stuff does load and run, but text won't display. This is especially problematic for the text in buttons and wigets, because it makes it very hard to use flash bashed applications.

I've removed the plugin and reinstalled it several times.

Any ideas as to the problem, or at least how to better diagnose it?

A decade and change ago, when I was an undergrad student, I walked in one day to the university bookstore, went up to the information desk, and talked to the clerk there, and had a conversation that went something like this:

Mark: There is this book, that I wanted... but I forgot what it was.
Clerk: I've got it right here. (hands me the book)
Mark: Thank you. I'll pay for it now. (hands her my credit card)
Clerk: Thanks! (runs the card, prints the receipt, etc) There you go!
Mark: Thanks!


There was a guy nearby who watched and overheard this transaction, who looked really really confused.

What he didn't know, was that the clerk was my sister, [livejournal.com profile] wyckhurst, and we had talked about that book the night before.

Sadly, I don't remember which book it was...
