On Internet Explorer I obtain a cpu output of between 57-63% On Mozilla and Firefox the cpu is at 100% constant. If wmode is not used, then the browsers are identical in performance, setting wmode causes the problem to appear. I'm on Pentium 4, 2.53, with 512 megs of ram. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Set a flash movie to wmode="transparent" or wmode="opaque" 2. 3. Actual Results: CPU peaked at 100% on moz Expected Results: Be comparable to Internet Explorer In performance
yes it's true, some consideration explorer-transparent: 60-70% firefox-transparent: 100% explorer-opaque: 65-75% firefox-opaque: 60-70%
Note that the flash binaries used by IE and Firefox are different... this could well be an issue in the flash binaries themselves.
I've seen this behavior on tons of websites, especially with those annoying animated Flash ads. Sometimes it's so bad I have to disable Flash to even attempt to browse the site because the CPU is pegged at 100%. Since IE also has issues, just not as bad, I'd guess this is a half Firefox/half Flash plugin problem.
