Firefox, Chrome, and Flash

Recommended Posts


I have been having terrible performance issues with Flash plugin for a very long time.


It crashed almost every time I try to play something. This was happening in Firefox, Chrome, Chromium, Konqueror, pretty much every browser.

I tried uninstalling, reinstalling, downgrade to older version, compile my own from source, and just about anything else that was recommended by the experts at Google search results.


I now have it "fixed". It only crashes about 50% of the time, unless I am playing an embedded video where it crashes over 75% of the time.


How did I accomplish this, you ask?


I installed Mozilla's experimental browser Aurora, and keep it up to date with nightly builds.

Who knew bleeding edge would be more stable than "stable"?

Flash has been amazingly stable in Iceweasel for me lately, which was not always the case. Still uses 20-40% of both my CPU cores though.
