Description

4 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Android; Tablet; rv:23.0) Gecko/23.0 Firefox/23.0 (Nightly/Aurora)
Build ID: 20130730111902

Steps to reproduce:

I went to a YouTube video requiring Flash on my Windows 7 computer. It is not a low-end system.

I tried dragging the tab outside the browser./Happens also when there is some CPU-hungry operation.


Actual results:

The whole system froze and I couldn't even move my pointer. (This happened a few more times.)


Expected results:

The video should have played normally.
A system freeze is always a system bug. Firefox is a usermode application and you should be able to always kill the firefox process with the taskmanager. In most cases a driver (graphic card driver) is causing such system freezes and firefox only triggers the bug.

True that. Should have taken more attention when I filed this bug.

However, Flash still affects the browser's performance rather badly and this has made people to switch to another browser. This should be given attention IMO.
we have no control over the flash plugin development and we depend on Adobe.
Google as example bought the Flash source code and can fix every bug in their special Flash plugin that affects their chrome browser.
The flash plugin will also die soon and will be replaced by html video/audio and developers will therefore not spend much time with flash plugin issues.

I appreciate your honesty and cannot help but agree.

One final question: Is there some tracker bug for Shumway integration? Thanks.
search here in bugzilla in the shumway component but i doubt that it's already good enough to plan an integration.
