Firefox 3.6.8 still having problems loading heavy Flash websites

Posted

Upgraded to latest 3.6.8 Firefox version and noting it is still having issues loading heavy flash websites. Takes 5 to 6 times longer to load a webpage if there is Flash on it. I do have the latest version of Flash installed according to Adobe's website so that's not the culprit. Will be uninstalling this latest version and rolling back to the copy of 3.6.3 version I kept which worked great with all flash websites. Waiting for the problem to get fixed before I update again...hoping they can fix this. I noticed this problem starting back with version 3.6.6 and still hasn't been fixed with 3.6.8...

I have the same problem, tried upgrading to the version 4.0b6 of Firefox, installed NoScript, Flash is upgraded yet when I go to a site with heavy graphics it locks up all of the tabs and keeps saying it is loading. This happens most noticeably on sites such as Airmiles.ca or Q107fm.ca where there is a lot of flash. If I open Internet Explorer, it has no issue with the sites.
