Crappy performance with Flash + Firefox


I just want to know if it is just me.
Does anyone else has a crappy performance when playing flash movies on Linux, with Firefox?

Such as audio being out of sync with video?

Dunno. It's out of my realm of experience, so I don't know where to start.

i also don't have this problem but it is an issue effecting some people
this is a solution from BorderPatrol another LQ contributor

1)Type about:config into the location bar and press enter
2)Right click any line to bring up a sub-menu
3)Choose "new">"integer"
4)paste this into the dialogue that appears: browser.cache.memory.capacity
5)Next click Okay
6)Specify the amount in kb (about 60000 should do) in the next dialogue that appears
7)Restart Firefox and happy surfing.

Whoa... what? Whoa. It works. That's awesome. I was actually, uh... just about to try that very same thing... <.<

I had this problem on OS X too, it's not unique to Linux. I never even bothered to try to figure it out, I just always used Safari, but... it works now. Nice!

Most people HATE FLASH -- If I see flash on someone's web site --especially with HIDEOUS music I move on.

You can improve the performance of firefox --go into the address bar and type about:config

scroll down to Network and where it says Disable IPV6 False --change it to true-- you won't be stopped from accessing IPV6 sites however.

Cheers
