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.
Moving to evangelism and m1.0.

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.
