    IE9 and Flash wonky today.

    I started the PC today and it wanted to update Flash Player. No problem. I then open the browser to surf my favorite sites and find that Flash is appearing all over the screen instead of where it is intended to appear. Anybody else experience this, or is my machine wonked out?

    I'm not sure if it's related, but I did have to run an IE9 update today on one of my machines. I haven't checked patch notes and in all reality this update could be from days ago, but it may have something to do with it.

    I'm having flash crashing issues in Firefox 4 for a few days now. The plugin will randomly crash once in a while. Mainly with embedded videos.

    Mostly flash games crash on my end. Videos don't. It's weird to me. Did you try Chrome to see if it does the same thing? The flash is built in and I assume they tweak it so it works with Chrome.

    My FF and Chrome are fine (I have them installed for testing purposes). You say IE is doing the same thing on your PC?

    LOL, I have never thought IE7+ was that bad but this is pushing me over the top. If they don't fix this soon, I may join the revolution.

    I've always thought FF was the best browser. More powerful then IE ever will be. Plus IE's security is a joke.

    Don't kid yourself, FF has just as many critical security bulletins as IE.

    Found the solution to this problem on the net.

    click on the gear icon
    click on “internet options
    click on advanced
    check "use software rendering instead of GPU rendering"
    restart IE9

    But turning the GPU acceleration off defeats the whole purpose of using IE9. That was it's main feature.

    Maybe, I don't know, but until this is fixed - it works for me.

    I don't notice a difference either way.

    I'm on a laptop with built-in GPU. Banners and Flash all load the same either way. I really don't see how it would affect performance as movies are timeline based anyway. Playing some online Flash-based game might make a difference, I don't know. But, all is well for my web surfing habits. Just congratulate me and drop the issue, eh? Have fun with FF and I'll enjoy IE9.

    I see what the problem is I think it is your laptop's GPU. Intel GMA are not very stable.

    Congrats on getting your issue fixed Joker. LOL.

    Found the root of the problem. I updated the GPU driver to the latest and all is well (even with acceleration enabled).

    I was busy chasing down IE9 and Flash Player, I didn't even think about a driver update - so thank you ninkynonk, you got me thinking in that direction.
