Possibly, but I'm not the creative sort, I try to make other peoples ideas work. And the last 2 times, people went "can you not just keep it mostly the same" ;)

Boost Flash performance
« on: October 06, 2012, 04:49:37 »
Found a few things that can improve Flash performance quite a bit. Two of these three below leave a small vulnerability in your system but if you are running any decent anti-virus, you don't need to worry.

  • If you are running Firefox, type "about:config" into the address bar and click past the warning screen. Search for "dom.ipc.plugins.enabled" and change it to "false". This stops Firefox trying to run your plugins inside a sandbox process. On paper, the sandboxing is a good idea, in practice it's really slow in Firefox.
  • Turn off protected mode in Flash. It requires editing a file. If it doesn't exist, then create the file. 64 bit users should perform both edits
    • 32 bit - go to \Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash and edit mms.cfg. Put in a line that says "ProtectedMode=0"
    • 64 bit - after doing step above, go to \Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash and perform the same edit
  • If you are running Firefox on a 64 bit Windows machine and don't like other browsers, install WaterFox instead. It is a 64 bit version that is updated regularly from the Firefox source code. All your extensions and themes should work and it will run 64 bit versions of your plugins such as Flash and Java.

The last item in the list is the safest and will not compromise your PC security in any way. To get the maximum benefit, do all of it. Editing the Flash config will also improve performance in Internet Explorer and Chrome (if you force it to use the separate Flash installation)
