Description

4 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:31.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/31.0 Iceweasel/31.4.0
Build ID: 20150113105201

Steps to reproduce:

First, i tried with adobe flash player to read and print to file.pdf the magazine; zoom was deficient and printing was impossible. I tried with Chromium and Pepper Flash Player from Debian backports: success. I could not find "Fresh Player" for Debian, because I do prefer Firefox rather than Chromium. I installed Shumway from http://mozilla.github.io/shumway/
Site was http://www.ieee.org/ns/periodicals/Photo/feb2015/index.html 


Actual results:

Shumway nicely installed; however, unable to display the 3dissue magazine, just the background image, not even the icons on page (download, print, etc.) Shumay and report problems icons on top right top of page appeared.  


Expected results:

I expected, at least, a similar behavior as the one for "Chromium + Pepper Flash plug-in". NOTE: I do use Debian Wheezy with Iceweasel 31.4.0, and I trust this behavior would be identical in Firefox; Shumway used was version 0.10.186

Thanks for the report. Unfortunately, Shumway is still a ways off from being a full replacement for the Flash plugin that works on all sites. Chromium uses the original Flash plugin in a slightly different form from what used to be released for Firefox on Linux, too. Shumway, on the other hand, is a completely independent implementation that doesn't share code with the Flash plugin. We're aiming for full compatibility, but aren't there yet.
