    Just like the topic....I play lots of little flash games, and since switching to unbuntu w/ firefox, Id say about 20% of them are lagged to be unplayable. Never had this issue with IE on Windows. So far as I know, all the flash and mozilla and everything I have is updated. Anyone had anything like this, or even better, know a fix? :hsd:

    Sometimes firefox has flash problems, and I have to use other browsers for flash. Unlike you I don't have these extreme brand loyalties that totally define my life. I just use what works best in each situation.

    I've been trying to post a reply for half an hour. Firefox managed to take down my entire system three times. Three hard reboots.

    I don't use it because its the best. I use it because I am totally dependant on Firebug/Web Dev Tools, and because I need to use the browser most of my customers use.

    I know its hard to imagine when your ego is so fragile that you can't understand how more than one choice could be valid... but try.

    use opera debug tools. And you can test your site in firefox. same as I test stuff in msie. doesn't mean i do my personal browsing in it!

    I find two browsers to be really cumbersome.

    Then again, I'm using Safari at this moment just because Firefox took down OS X three times running.

    Whoa. That was a little intense for me, but I'll give Opra a shot.

    I believe it was the VBulletin Plugin that messed FF up.
