Build:20001030 candidate, linux
Default plugin present

Steps :

1. Launch the browser
2. Visit the above mentioned url
3. Observe the default plugin dialog pop up asking you to downlaod the flash 
   plugin for linux
4. Clicking OK on the dialog opens up a new browser window with some garbled 
  text, like, repeated search textfield and an advertisement banner. The browser 
  seems to slow down.

Expected: Flash download page should pop up and user should be able to install 
fhasl player.

Rafael, could you please doublecheck the plug-in download page that's brought up
by this sequence and make sure there are no problems, particularly when viewed
on Linux? If there are any problems, could you fix the page's markup as neeeded?
If not, please close this as INVALID.

Shriran, it's spec for the plug-in downloader puzzle piece to refer you to a
generic page for all plug-ins (not a specific page for the plug-in you
need--that would definitely be better, but the default plug-in isn't that smart
yet; this would be a good enhancement request for the Future).

Marking [rtm-] as I don't think this is an RTM blocker either way.

The URL in question is
http://www.macromedia.com/shockwave/download/index.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=Shockwave
Flash?application/x-shockwave-flash

Looks weird on 4.x on Windows too. I seriously doubt that Plugins is a right 
component. Some investigation of the page source is needed, to me it looks like 
nested frames referencing to themselves.

I get "We are unable to locate a single Web player that best matches your
platform and operating system.", but that might be due to using a daily build.
