    I was wondering if there is any fix or anything to fix flash in OS X. I notice that when i click away for Safari the flash seems to slow and or it is Sluggish. Any solutions. I'm hoping they fix this in Leopard.

    You first have to determine where the problem is if there is a problem. On which site do you experience the problem. Have you upgraded to the most recent Flash plug-in? Are you using QuickTime to handle Flash content instead of a Flash plug-in? Have you updated to the new version of QuickTime?

    Sites like Youtube for example. And it is using Flash. I'm pretty sure everything is updated.

    Well, the flash "slowdown" is actually intentional. Flash sucks up too much CPU and battery juice so Apple designed Safari so that Flash's resource appetite is tamed when Safari isn't the frontmost app. Part of the taming involves reducing Flash's framerate if video is being presented. So it's actually a feature, not a bug.

    However, if you must have it, here is a solution. Try it at your own risk.

    That solution doesn't work. I follow all the instructions and when i restart Safari it won't show the browser.
