Thread: Adobe Flash lags every five sec. or so (just recently)

    Default Adobe Flash lags every five sec. or so (just recently)


    Lately, when I've watched any Flash video, it's lagged every five
    seconds or so. It hasn't always done this, just recently. The thing is,
    I have no idea what I might have done to cause this change. Any ideas? I
    tried uninstalling and reinstalling Flash from the repos, but to no
    avail.

    I use Flash all the time for the bbc here in the UK. And I must confess
    I had suspected Flash as causing a reboot issue on my Box, but by
    process of elimination I nailed it down to an old HD.

    Flash is certainly not perfect, even in windows there are issues for
    users when choosing High Quality from the view option and even the Full
    Screen view has been an issue.

    I will not even pretend to suggest I have any answers for you. But as
    it is, Flash works reasonably well for me. Though for the life of me, I
    can't understand why something so fundamental as this remains behind
    closed doors.

    I know it's not a hardware deficiency, as I haven't had any problem with
    Flash until recently. I'm hoping I won't have to bring out my Eee every
    time I want to watch pretty much any online video properly...

    Oh, it's a Firefox problem. Flash works fine in Konqueror. Now how to
    fix Firefox...

    Try a rename of the hidden .mozilla folder, so it starts a new one.
    Don't add any extensions and see how it works.

    You can always go back to your old mozilla folder - once you have
    tested.

    Yep, must be something wrong with this profile(?). The problem went away
    with the new .mozilla folder. So would this be most likely due to an
    extension, or something else?

    > So would this be most likely due to an extension


    I think so.
    Process of elimination. But there is always the possibility that even
    when you have added them all back, it will be OK. So it could just be
    down to some settings somewhere.

    Well, I've figured out that it's not Flash that's lagging, but the whole
    of Firefox. Wish I had noticed this earlier, or at least had the ability
    to edit posts older than a few minutes.

    With FF running - open a terminal and do:

    top

    see what it reckons FF is using

    I never have issue with FF, though it's not all that uncommon to have
    reports here in the forum.
