I'm not sure if this is a bug for firefox, kde, kubuntu, or adobe flash player but every time I go on an online video site like youtube I see a lot of tearing. And when I say a lot of tearing I mean tearing when their is barely any motion at all. I know that my video driver isn't the problem because when I switch to fullscreen any tearing that their might be is barely noticeable. Also I haven't noticed the problem while in gnome. 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Watch an online video while in kde
2.
3.
Actual Results:  
Tearing while watching videos regardless of the amount of motion

Expected Results:  
smooth video playback
Version: unspecified → 3.6 Branch
This sounds quite a bit like a vsync problem with compositing.  Can you reproduce the problem if you run a different window manager, or turn off compositing in KDE (if you can still do that)?  If not, then please report this as a bug against KDE.
Severity: minor → S4
