The latest Flash plug-in causes lag in Firefox 18
I play a lot of online Flash games in my brower, and I updated to FF 18 as soon as it became available. Followed by Shockwave Flash 11.5 r502 on the same day. 11.5.502.106 to be precise. The first thing I noticed was extreme lag in the games, as they slowed right down.
Closing FF and restarting helped a little, but only for a while as the lag then resumed.
I've since reverted to FIrefox 17.0.1, and Flash works with that just fine.

Please check if all your plugins are up-to-date. To do this, go to the Mozilla Plugin Check site.

WTH is this?
I do not have "Java". Why in Gods green earth, would you trick people into installing it?
You had an old version of Java on your PC, and it got disabled.
I NEVER had java on here.
Neither did alot of unsuspecting people that actually installed it not knowing any better.
