I tried the site out using Opera, and it works ok, also I have upgraded 
Firefox directly from the Mozilla site, and now have version This 
also displays the site ok. I did have to create a couple of softlinks 
to /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins for the flash stuff from /usr/local/firefox, 
where I put the firefox directory.

Perhaps there is a problem with the flash-plugin you downloaded directly from 
Adobe, but it doesn't make much sense, as the Debian nonfree repo downloads 
it from the same site. 

This is my /etc/apt/sources.list for Debians repo.

deb http://http.us.debian.org/debian/ etch main contrib non-free

It may be worth removing the flashplugin you installed directly from adobe, 
and reinstalling using Debian's non-free repo. Personally I don't see what 
difference this will make, but as I have Konqueror, Opera, and Firefox 
accessing the site you're having problems with, it might be worth a try.


Totally OT. Where does your name Tarlika come from? That is really nice, and 
have never seen it before.
