Re: Firefox + Flash terribly slow
Ever since upgrading to Ubuntu 9.04 I have had no end of problems getting Flash to play smoothly. 8.10 wouldn't play fullscreen Flash smoothly on some websites, but Youtube in fullscreen worked OK. That's now unwatchable on my systems in 9.04 and the CPU is maxed out.
The curious thing is that not many people have reported this problem and it affects both my laptop (7900 GS) and desktop (GTX 260). I've tried several driver versions and am now running the latest betas. Compiz enabled/disabled makes no difference; it's also slow in Kubuntu.
I've given up with Flash now and am just waiting to see if it improves in 9.10.
