Web pages with flash content have serious rendering issues. The areas of the page with flash content look jumbled. You can tell what is supposed to be there, but it is all mized up. If you click on the flash content then you get more brokeness. You never see the flash animation.

Rob, what gnash do we have in our builds? Do we need fresh bits?

Changed 7 years ago by danw

Updated gnash to current CVS version. Hopefully this will help?

A webpage that has been unusable in past images due to its heavy use of flash is http://elpais.es .

In 539, although gnash processes take 100% of cpu and don't render completely correctly the animations, the web page is perfectly readable and there seems to be no artifacts introduced by the flash content.

Please create new tickets for pages that render correctly in firefox but not in Browse and attach urls.
