A possible fix for slow Flash plug-in loading in Safari
Authored by: robleach on Feb 06, '09 07:29:45AM

I understand the debate, but I don't think anyone whose posted thus far really knows 100% what the file is for. However, I can attest that removal of the file (I just added a bogus file extension so I can return it to normal later if needed) indeed greatly improves performance. Whenever I was playing scrabble on facebook and then started up pandora, flash would always slow everything way down, making the scrabble interface unusable and no music would play either for minutes or until a message would come up with a flash error and not play at all. Changing the file name caused me to open both flash apps instantly with no delay!

"...I don't think anyone whose [sic] posted thus far really knows 100% what the file is for."

What led you to that conclusion? Appeared to me there were some pretty knowledgeable folks weighing in.
