I've downloaded and installed Macromedia Flash 5 plugin for linux. It works, but after an exaggerated delay (1-2 minutes). Until such a time is lasted, all Mozilla is completely blocked (even mail windows) and you neither cannot resize the windows. This happens almost for all pages embedding swf files of whatever dimensions.
test url pls , thx!
About the URL: as already sayd, whatever page containing an SWF file issues the problem. For instance, the macromedia home itself (www.macromedia.com). Also, if you try the file inside http://www.mycgiserver.com/~zakmck/drive.zip you may either do another test and have fun... ;-)
this kind of sounds like the cpu usage issue -- could it be that it just manifests itself more clearly on linux?
The plug-ins triage team (av, beppe, peterl, serge and shrir) have reviewed this issue and have made the following determination: Reporter: can you reproduce this same issue if the .swf file is on your local drive?

> Reporter: can you reproduce this same issue if the .swf file is on your local > drive? > Positive. When an SWF is loaded locally, or even by my LAN proxy, it's only a little faster, but yet the browser remains a lot of time stalled as described. I don't know, it looks like it needs long time to load Flash engine, like once, NN 4.x required a lot of time to load JVM in some platforms.

Marco, can you reproduce this problem with a current version of mozilla? There's a known problem with flash on linux; the plugin tries to open the sound device and hangs if another process is already using sound. Both KDE and Gnome include sound servers which trigger this behavior in mozilla, even when the user isn't using any obviously sound-related applications. If you use KDE, please try running mozilla through the "artsdsp" program, e.g. "artsdsp /path/to/mozilla". With gnome, I believe the equivalent program is esddsp. These programs intercept attempts to access the sound device and direct them to the sound server instead. You could also try upgrading your flash plugin. A beta release of flash version 6 is available; it's supposed to fixes some issues, though I haven't tried it myself. Please update this bug report to indicate whether you're still experiencing this problem.
I'm using the 1.1 version, with latest KDE (artsd wrapped), latest flash. Flash is yet a bit slow, but substantially the bug seems fixed. Thanks Guys.
