From bug 1305135, we're seeing an increase in memory usage at flash game sites.  reporter requested testing of https://apps.facebook.com/slotomania.  There I see memory usage in my Win 7 VM rise from steady state of 80% while browser has game loaded, but not actually playing it, to 85% when the game is played in asyndrawing mode.  The memory usage hovers around 82-83% when the game is played with asyncDrawing mode disabled.  Testing done in 49.0.2
This is tagged as a regression but I don't see any "before" numbers here?

I wonder why my browser cache can not save this game, each player has to reload long https://sites.google.com/site/unblockedgames24h/run-3

We believe this was fixed by an update in the Flash player related to async drawing. Resolving.
