flash plugin uses too much cpu

Hi,

Have a look at the following site:

http://news.sina.com.cn

This site uses a lot of flash stuff, and makes mozilla extremely
non-responsive on Linux/FreeBSD. Is there anyway to disable the flash 
plugin from mozilla? 

Regards,

Shao.

how to get help not always on top

Given that the bug report that the Help windows is always on top
(http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=9928) is marked WONTFIX,
what's the best way of getting that behavior changed to optional?

Thanks,
Daniel

add this to your
bookmark:
javascript:params=Components.classes[" <at> mozilla.org/embedcomp/dialogparam;1"].createInstance(Components.interfaces.nsIDialogParamBlock);params.SetNumberStrings(2);params.SetString(0, 
"chrome://help/locale/mozillahelp.rdf");params.SetString(1, 
"welcome");ww =

Components.classes[" <at> mozilla.org/embedcomp/window-watcher;1"].getService(Components.interfaces.nsIWindowWatcher);ww.openWindow(null, 
"chrome://help/content/help.xul", "_blank",

Mozilla does not paint a particular image correctly.

I was going through a secure web site https://www.storenet.jiffylube.com 
and made the following observation:
The image at the head of the web page was not painted correctly. After 
comparing it with IE output, it seems the top of the image is missing. 
Moreover, the header of the web page has few tab (like News, Marketing, 
Store operation, Employee database). With IE, the Welcome message is 
quite clear whereas with Mozilla, Welcome message overlaps theses Tabs. 
With IE, these tabs expands automatically (pull-down menu) when mouse is 
moved over them. With Mozilla, nothing happens when we move mouse over 
these tabs.

I observed the same problem with Mozilla 1.2.1, Mozilla 1.3.1, Mozilla 
1.4b, Netscape4.7 and Netscape 6.2. Only IE (I tried IE6.0) paints the 
page correctly.

The web server is: Microsoft-IIS/5.0.

I am attaching the source of the page as you need a security code to 
access the site.

Does anybody have faced similar problem?

Are we (Mozilla) missing some plug-in's which IE already has?
Or is this some kind of protocol/understanding (a deviation from RFC) 
between Microsoft-IIS and Microsoft IE?

In case this is not the right newsgroup please direct me to the right 
newsgroup.

Thanks and Regards

Re: Mozilla does not paint a particular image correctly.

I'm not seeing a problem, tried it in the latest nightly of Firebird, and in IE 
6, both looked the same, apart from some insignifigant border/padding issues.

http://24.77.72.149/lube/ie.png

This is undoubtedly one of the worst cases of HTML authoring I've ever seen 
though. validator.w3.org returned 114 errors, and I won't even get into the 
triple-nested tables!  Before expecting Mozilla to display a page properly, try 
to get the site authors to correct HTML errors.  It can be hard sometimes, but 
worth a try.

Re: Mozilla does not paint a particular image correctly.

I tried latest nightly of Firebird and Mozilla 1.4a but nothing worked.
I am using Win32 builds and using WinNT Version 4.0 (Build 1381: Service 
Pack 6) OS.

PFA the image (zip file) of Jiffy Lube web site as viewed by Mozilla 1.4a?

Once again, Am I missing some plug-in's?

Thanks and Regards

Re: Mozilla does not paint a particular image correctly.

No, there are no plugins on the page, just some javascript and CSS.  It looks 
like a positioning issue, but I can't imagine what it could be, since it works 
fine for me.  Did you try this with a clean install and a new profile?  Maybe a 
user-defined CSS is causing problems.

mozilla.org and ports

I understand that BeOS is not officially supported, but, a little 
concideration would be nice.  The IPC bug is not the first time, that 
certain parts of mozilla that are new features, have just been "turned 
on", which breaks the ports.  I am the primary developer of the BeOS 
port, and, was never informed about the fact that this change was going 
to be implemented.  This is a volunteer project, we do not have paid 
developers to work on the port.  But, people do somewhat depend on 
myself and a couple others, to make sure that the beos port is 
maintained, and, improved.  I don't mind having to do the work to fix 
the BeOS port, even though timeless beat me to it for this one.  But I 
had started working on it, without knowing of timeless's work.  The 
thing is, that I had to drop the other work I was doing, to fix this. 
If I would have known ahead of time, I could have set time aside, and 
started looking into the issue, before it became a problem.

Re: Mozilla does not paint a particular image correctly.

I tried by clean install (by uninstalling the previous version and then 
  manually deleting any files/subdirectory in Mozilla.org) and by using 
a new profile. But nothing worked for me.

May I know the details of OS and the Mozilla build you are using?
I would like to repeat this with the same OS and same build.
