User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.0; rv:13.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/13.0.1
Build ID: 20120614114901

Steps to reproduce:

updated flash player as per Flash request

updated firefox as requested by firefox


Actual results:

I have had issues with flash games on facebook not updating properly and also issues on the BBC (flash items not loading properly if at all). I opened task manager and noticed 2 instances of FlashPlayerPlugin_11_3_300_265.exe running, both using cpu time.


Expected results:

I believe only one instance of FlashPlayerPlugin_11_3_300_265.exe should be initialised

That's part of the Flash 11.3 sandbox design.

As filed, this bug is INVALID (two processes are expected). There may also be Flash bugs related to individual Flash games not painting or working as expected, but I think you should file those directly with Adobe bugbase.
