Package: gnome
Version: 1:2.22.2~5
Severity: normal

It is impossible to view flash videos with iceweasel using the flash 10 library provided by flashplayer-mozilla if you have gnome installed, since gnome depends on swfdec-mozilla which somehow takes precedence.

Please change swfdec-mozilla to a recommend or move this bug to iceweasel people for them to make that teh browser use flashplayer-mozilla instead of swfdec-mozilla .
