All browser vendors have a way to contact Adobe and report bugs and whatnot. The Flash related lock-ups have been happening for a long time now and I'm pretty sure it's the #1 reason people are moving to Chrome.

Saying that it's Flash's fault won't mean anything to the average user. They'll see a site lock up in FF and see the same site work fine in Chrome and that's all that will matter.

You are as clueless as you accuse the parent poster to be. XPCOM is not used for plug-in, NPAPI is. It's the same API that was used in the Netscape days. Even MS used to use that API for early versions of IE before they moved to ActiveX in a ploy to hurt Netscape on plugin compatibility.

You are confusing WebGL with acceleration of the web page rendering done in IE, FF and Chrome. They are completely different things. WebGL is an API web devs can use to draw 3D stuff.

Hardware acceleration is all done under the hood and doesn't use WebGL (it uses DirectX or OpenGL and is not called in any way by the web developer.
