    • Attempt to play videos in another browser and perceive if the trouble persists.
    • Attempt uninstalling the flash plug-in and then reinstall it.
    • Attempt disabling compiz special special effects. (MintMenu> Appearance> Click the third tab (I imagine that says "advanced" or something)> Click "None" ("Simple desktop")

    I prefer to keep my browser and not solve the problem, attempt to proxy around. I looked at my add-ons to attempt to get rid of the / reinstall flash, and saw a few things.

    DivX Browser Plugin, mplayer-plugin is already gecko-media player 1.0.0, 7.6.4 plug-in QuickTime, RealPlayer 9 and Windows Media Player Plug-in. They seem to be overlapping / maybe in conflict, should I remove some?

    Now I have Compiz off for the reason that I hate all animations for the reason that my computer seems to not want to do any of them.

    Try disabling all add-ons except the flash plug-in so we can be on familiar terms with if the rest of them are causing troubles.

    What do you mean? I'm still kind of new to Linux, so I need a little walk-thru. Synaptic know how to find and show that I do not know what you're asking is all.

    Go to menu administration>> synaptic. It will ask for your password so you type in. When you open Synaptic, the flash in the search box and see what shows you are installing.

    Getting rid of the Flash Mint, download a free of charge version frequently work finest. This is the name of the package non-free "adobe-flashplugin". Disable all add-ons.

    That's my graphics card. If that will help, but I think it probably has more to do with the compatibility of the card with a Linux-Linux Flash support as I thought.
