Re: flash slow

firefox.exe -p created new profile. seems to be working for now. note: you will have to restore your favs passwords and addons after doing this.

Re: flash slow

Recent crashes of certain multimedia contents (this includes Youtube videos, certain flash games and other applications) in conjunction with Firefox are most probably caused by a recent Flash 11.3 update and/or a malfunctioning Real Player browser plugin.

In order to remedy the problem, please perform the steps mentioned in these Knowledge Base articles:

Flash Plugin - Keep it up to date and troubleshoot problems

Adobe Flash plugin has crashed - Prevent it from happening again

Flash 11.3 doesn't load video in Firefox

Re: flash slow

You can check for problems caused by recent Flash updates and try these:

disable a possible RealPlayer Browser Record Plugin extension for Firefox and update the RealPlayer if installed
disable protected mode in Flash 11.3 and later
disable hardware acceleration in the Flash plugin

Re: flash slow

The current version of Flash Player for Windows is 11.6.602.180.

Can you install Flash if you disable the antivirus temporarily first?

Re: flash slow

hello, maybe it's an issue with the protected mode in the flash plugin - you could try if downgrading to flash 10.3 (which is still supported) or disabling protected mode makes a difference.

Re: flash slow

i just cant put my finger on it. the check page tries to load and shows the current ver number. but the graphic doesnt play. it stops. flash doesnt work in ie either. i just wonder why im getting a hit on the AV. i might try on flashes forums too before i disable AV. but everything works fine in chrome.
