IdiotatFirefox.png

User Agent: Opera/9.80 (X11; Linux x86_64) Presto/2.12.388 Version/12.16

Steps to reproduce:

after noticing some Idiot at Firefox screwed Shockwave Flash Player - I followed all the steps the Idiot proposed - all FAILED.  
I then went OFF-Site and tried other suggestions to Fix what the IDIOT had broken - all Failed


Actual results:

All attempts to repair what the Idiot at Firefox broke, FAILED


Expected results:

If the Idiot thought not using Flash, or was attempting to force users to always consider the use of FLASH; all the while, having no solution from his/her own Idiot Mind then you have to wonder what to do with Your Idiot.

What he has broken cannot be repaired - Perhaps Your idiot should consider TESTING his/her Idiot idea.

Specifically, all attempts at remedy for Fedora 20 FAIL! what a MORON!!!

Not security sensitive and not an actionable bug. I don't know what you are referring to but I certainly hope you feel better after this rant. For what it's worth, I run Fedora 20 and also use Flash.

 One of the configured repositories failed (mono and monodevelop (Fedora_20)),
 and yum doesn't have enough cached data to continue. At this point the only
 safe thing yum can do is fail. There are a few ways to work "fix" this:

     1. Contact the upstream for the repository and get them to fix the problem.

     2. Reconfigure the baseurl/etc. for the repository, to point to a working
        upstream. This is most often useful if you are using a newer
        distribution release than is supported by the repository (and the
        packages for the previous distribution release still work).

     3. Disable the repository, so yum won't use it by default. Yum will then
        just ignore the repository until you permanently enable it again or use
        --enablerepo for temporary usage:

            yum-config-manager --disable home_tpokorra_mono

     4. Configure the failing repository to be skipped, if it is unavailable.
        Note that yum will try to contact the repo. when it runs most commands,
        so will have to try and fail each time (and thus. yum will be be much
        slower). If it is a very temporary problem though, this is often a nice
        compromise:

            yum-config-manager --save --setopt=home_tpokorra_mono.skip_if_unavailable=true

I suggest you fix the repo problem or work around it as described in the yum error message. None the less, this is not an issue with Firefox but with your local Fedora installation. I'm sure with a little searching you can find a solution. Perhaps in the future you may get more help if you didn't call people idiots.

Please don't reopen this bug again.
