BuildID: 20020208 When visiting sites which use flash, I have noticed that there is often loss of speed in Mozilla 0.9.8+ in comparison to Mozilla 0.9.7 (or Netscape 4 for that matter). Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Visit a site which uses flash (e.g. http://games.sohu.com/fightgame/fight3.htm) 2. Compare performance to earlier Moz's/Netscape 4 Actual Results: Flash displayed slowly Expected Results: Flash to be displayed at least as quickly as it was in Netscape 4 It is not so severe in 20020208 but it's still slower than Netscape 4 (and seems to pause too)...
cc: blizzard who did some work here with bug 117398 and pav who had the famous timer code. :) I had bz run an informal tests on this flash file and he noticed a 5 second regression in time. 141s with 2001-12-13-08 ( 2 days before pavlov's timer code landed ) 146s with current trunk build. which is ~3.5% regression and cause for some investigation. I don't see any pausing at all which the reporter noted. Also updating URL to point to the flash file directly.
It's probably going to be a little slower, but that's the tradeoff for not starving the UI event queue and timer queue and still giving reasonable performance for flash animations.
It also also quite a bit slower than Opera 6.2 Beta Linux with the same plugin. That browser shows flash at the speed I expect it to be (perhaps even a little fast) albeit stuttering a little. I'll test in IE and report back.
I would argue that since this was filed first bug 126139 should be a dup of this (:P) and bug bug 104218 is for Windows and concerns dynamic content (rather than an animation)

Created attachment 85936 [details] Test Case Since the URL above (at games.sohu.com) is outdated, this is another test case, obtained from http://www.sfdt.com/.
setting to future, we will review this at a later date

Updating URL to one that works (but use the testcase because the xiaoxiaomovie site is often slow and overloaded).
i see it with flash6.0r29 *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 132759 ***

I am not convinced that this bug is a dup of 132759... It's the wrong platform and this bug is about performance becomming slower since moz 0.9.8 not about 100% CPU being used (it's not).
Re-opening Bug 132759 is specific to Flash 6. There is no flash 6 for linux. The original report describes a regression wrt speed of Flash 5 and Linux.
