[SATLUG] Freezing Mint

I would agree that is really odd Al.

I did a fresh install of Mint/MATE 17.3 on my T520 and I have no issues 
with flash in either: Firefox/Chrome/Opera.  From what I know, OpenSuSE 
and Mint use pretty similar network stacks, so that should not be the 
issue, it might be a bad build of FF. Your findings with Chrome might be 
telling there.

I would completely remove FF and re-install and go from there!

Best of luck man!
