Right, well I can't do that at work. And I just had to downgrade firefox
from 45, because I was *trying* to do my annual required privacy and
security refresher, and it opened, it has, I think, flash audio, and
firefox crashed, fired it up again, restored, and started and it crashed
*again*, and a third time, and that was it: I downgraded, didn't have to
(also couldn't) downgrade flash-plugin, but had no trouble at all
completing the training. Note that I *could* play streaming media and
youtube with 45, but... and, no, you've *got* to be joking to think I'm
going to convince upper management to ban flash....
