[PVE-User] VNC Console from Ubuntu 9.04 Firefox Problems

Hi Martin,

Both machines are 9.04 upgrades, and I was wondering if that could be a
factor.  That gives me hope that there is a potential fix.

>From about:plugins:

	Java(TM) Plug-in 1.6.0_13-b03

	File name: libjavaplugin_oji.so
	Java(TM) Plug-in 1.6.0_13

I purged sun-java6-plugin, sun-java6-jre, and sun-java6-bin then
confirmed Java was gone and then reinstalled.  No luck there, so perhaps
it's not with JRE; maybe Firefox upgraded from 8.10 has some issues.

Tried gecko browser, same problem.

Fortunately, nc -l -p 9000 -c "qm vncproxy VMID PASSWORD" works very well.

Best regards,
