    Are you using Firefox?

    Perhaps you could try Chrome and see if that works any better for you.

    Can you type the following into your address bar

    Code:
    about:plugins
    You should find a section title "Shockwave Flash"
    Past the area right below the title that tells you the file and version in your reply here.

    That may be a Facebook issue. It has been running painfully slow for me today.


    Can you get me your flash version as posted earlier? That way we can be sure the advice is relevent to your setup.


    Thanks

    It's because Ubuntu has an awesome "Anti-crappy-game" filter.

    On a serious note, maybe Flash is struggling? Do you have the latest version of flash?

    swfdec conflicts with Flash.

    Try removing it and see if your situation improves.

    As noted above you should get rid of swfdec and gnash (if you have it).

    Two other suggestions you could try if the above does not work.


    1 - Try installing swiftfox and see if it performs better.
    http://getswiftfox.com/deb.htm

    2 - There is a beta version of the newest Adobe that I have had much success with. I only reccomend this as a last option as you will be installing something directly. Being that it has no repo there will be no updates automatically and you would have to update it yourself.

    (I suggest this because my wife had issue with Bejeweled on Facebook. This version of Flash cleared it up for her)

    I have only tested these instructions in Firefox/Swiftfox. I do not know if they work outside of that.


    Instructions
    - Remove all flash plugins via your preferred package manager
    - Close Firefox/Swiftfox
    - Open a terminal and type the following

    Code:
    sudo rm /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so
    This removes the file for the flash plugin incase the uninstall does not do it.

    - Download the following
    http://download.macromedia.com/pub/l..._041910.tar.gz

    This is the 10.1rc2 release

    - Extract the libflashplayer.so to your home folder
    - type the following in the terminal

    Code:
    sudo cp libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/
    Restart you favorite "fox" type browser and type aboutlugins to see if everything worked.

    Please note that if you decide to do this, then go back to the repositories you should hand delete the file using the rm line before starting.

    Use at your own risk...yadda yadda
