I updated my local Flash install on Windows 7 to version 126.96.36.199, and ever since Firefox janks severely. So much to the point that I had to uninstall Flash. STR: On Windows 7 with latest Firefox Nightly Install Flash 188.8.131.52 Open a few webpages that use Flash (espn.com, irccloud, youtube)
With e10s enabled or not? Does this jank manifest itself as a pause when creating a new plugin instance, but after that it's mostly fine? Or do you end up with continuous jank until Flash is gone (or even worse, forever)?
pauly, can you try and reproduce and get a profile if you experience this?

I still had issues after killing plugin_container.exe, but I'm not sure if it was Firefox recovering from the deathgrip that Flash had put on it or if it was going to stay in that state (persisted for > 30 seconds before I closed Firefox to uninstall Flash).
Everything's fine to me on any of the pages mentioned in comment 0. 36.0a1 (2014-10-28), Win 7 x64, Flash 184.108.40.206, AMD FX(tm)-8320 Eight-Core Processor 3.50Ghz, 8 GB RAM, AMD Radeon R7 200 Series
Ok, it's all working fine for me after reinstalling today. I'm not sure what the hiccup was, but it happened for me after multiple installs/uninstalls. I'll reopen if it comes back and try to grab a profile.
