Mouse pointer flashing like crazy
Since the last Flash update, Firefox crashes once or twice a day. According to the error reports sent, Flash did cause those crashes. Now there’s a new bug: the mouse pointer flickers like mad. I know it is Flash, because I killed the process in the task manager, and the mouse returned to normal. It’s not likely to be Firefox’s fault, but I thought I should still report it here to get it on record. Maybe Adobe will remedy this latest, highly buggy version of Flash.

Try to disable hardware acceleration in Firefox (you need to close and restart Firefox).
- Tools > Options > Advanced > General > Browsing: "Use hardware acceleration when available"
You can check for problems with current Flash plugin versions and try these:
- disable a possible RealPlayer Browser Record Plugin extension for Firefox and update the RealPlayer if installed
- disable protected mode in the Flash plugin (Flash 11.3+ on Windows Vista and later)
- disable hardware acceleration in the Flash plugin
