i see this one on windows too. cpu goes to 100% after I click on 2-3 random links on the page (I did not install the font that was required on this page). I see a lot of pop ups flooding on the screen and then the browser just stops responding.
Same problem on linux 2001121715 at http://www.7up.com
is this a new problem (regression) or an exsisting one (dup)?
Surely, this is not happening for all flash pages, BUT, the 7up page and the above test url do really slow tdown the machine and it's difficult to navigate since the cpu goes to 100%. I think this is new, there might be a few similar bugs..I will try to find dups.
http://www.7up.com is probably a dup of 115808 and it's linux only regression , but win32 platform problem in general (100% cpu loading when flash plugin is playing some *.swf ) is not new, 4.x has the same problem. BTW linux plugin could work fine with the same file. I haven't try it on mac.
Created attachment 62227 [details] an example of .swf which eats ~100% cpu on w2k here is an example of such .swf file I've borrowed from http://news.sina.com.cn
this is not a new bug - also reported in bug 99361
and bug 101879
I ran into this at http://www.port.am/maprus/framesrus.html (goes computedbound, UI freezes). I'm currently running Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; WinNT4.0; en-US; rv:1.0rc1) Gecko/20020417 with Shockwave Flash 5.0 r41 With Netscape 6.22, slightly different symptoms - goes computebound, but the UI still responds. With Netscape 4.79, works fine (if slowly - low bandwidth part of the web, I think). I can't yet say whether http://news.sina.com.cn fails for me - it's still loading after about 10 minutes.
The plug-ins triage team (av, beppe, peterl, serge and shrir) have reviewed this issue and have made the following determination: This is a dup of bug 132759, even though this was reported prior to that bug. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 132759 ***
