Firefox 1.5 available today — improves Flash Player performance on OSX

When we released the Studio 8 Experience on our website back on 8/8, there was a pretty big issue with Flash Player performance in Firefox on OSX. You had to hold down the mouse button to get Flash content to play properly. Actually, it’s been a known issue since 2001 — but we’re happy to say that the bug is fixed in Firefox 1.5 which shipped today!

Get Firefox 1.5 today and give those mouse fingers a break!

reminder: we offer distribution licenses for Macromedia Web Players

It always seems that a lot of people aren’t aware of our licensing program, so here is a little reminder with links to the information. Macromedia offers MSI and MSM installers for Windows, and DMG for Mac OSX for distribution over intranet and fixed media through a simple online registration process.

The process is very quick to complete and at the end of it you will receive an email with a link to the download page. This is the process that ensures you a) have the right installers and b) are legally distributing these installers over your network.

I have also seen some recent newsgroup postings that say the MSI isn’t working for people. If you have steps to reproduce an error, or you would like the installer to do something differently/better, please submit a bug/feature request.
