You can go with the November 16th Trace Monkey build, John. It appears the Central and Trace Monkey builds have been split again and the asynchronous layer-based plugin painting "fix" has not been merged with the Trace Monkey build, yet.

As you discovered, the latest November 16 Central (trunk) build crashes Flash.

(Note: I'm only discussing the x64 FF 4.0b8pre builds)

John, the latest Central (trunk) build (November 17th) doesn't break Flash anymore but it does mess with the drop downs on this forum. For example, if one clicks on the "Quick Links" drop down at the top, nothing happens but a page refresh.

The latest Trace Monkey build (November 17th), however, works fine on these forums and with Flash.

Let me edit, John, it's still best to stick with the November 16th Trace Monkey build for now as even the November 17th build crashes Flash on a few sites (Politico, in particular, for one).

Edit 2 (11-18): The November 18th Trunk build has fixed a number of bugs and other issues. Stability has returned to the trunk!

Can I have both x86 & x64?

Guys hi, Can I have both x86 & x64 flash plugins?. My main browser today is firefox 3.6.12 with a lot of extensions, VERY personalized to my form of work. All these exts work ok in x64 3.6.xx builds, of course not flash. What I'd like to know is I can have like java, both x86 AND x64 flash plugs installed ????

ElQuia to answer your question, yes you can. Same goes for having both 32 and 64 bit Java.

Firefox 4.0b8pre x64 (portable) crashes with plugin installed on opening a page with flash. IE 8 x64 works OK. Will try later on with a 3.6.xx x64 build of firefox and see what gives and report back EDIT: downloaded firfox makatos build 3.6.3 "namoraka". Installed, copied over to portable installation, with no profile. Flash x64 worked OK. Added a FULL (lots of extensions) profile, flash x64 still works Just in case downloaded todays nightly of 4.0b8 (the one I had was a couple of days old), and BEHOLD: flash does not crash anymore. So maybe these Adobe guys are doing some good work, EVEN if it IS QUITE LATE (64 bit HAS been around for a while you know?). ;-)
