Flash, xft, gtk2, and Firefox/mozilla

Is there anyone out there using Slackware with a Mozilla or Firefox gtk2/xft build, who has the flash plugin working perfectly?

As far as I can tell, the combination of xft and gkt2 always causes flash to run ultra slow and show an unwanted 1px black line around the top and left borders of the plug in.

I'm referring to bug # 219625 on

(sorry, can't link until I have 5 posts!)

To find out if you have a gtk2 build, type in about:buildconfig (remove the space after about) in the address bar. You'll know if you have an xft build because if you don't, the fonts are jagged; not anti-aliased.

thanks much for taking a moment to test this!

- Noah

Yeah my flash runs ultra slow with that combo (eg for that bash the penguin game), but for say it seems to work ok.
