    "No word on if this will do anything to fix the Flash video lockup issue that has plagued Mozilla?s browser for quite some time now."

    WTF is this? I use both Firefox for 32 bit and Pale Moon for 64 bit under Windows and have not seen any type of flash video lock up except on non-standard flv or mp4 files encoded with oddball audio codecs. These fil;es will play fine in stand alone players such as MPC or Zoom Player.

I'll load a video, 480p version starts playing, I switch to 720p then start the video again from 0:00 then just as I do that, Firefox locks up and stops responding. Then I have to wait a good 20 or so seconds before Flash craps out and Firefox is responsive again.
