Flash plugin for fIrefox on Jaunty is soooo sloooow

A fresh install of a machine with Ubuntu 9.04 (Jaunty) and Firefox 3.0.12 (I know, 3.5 is out...maybe later) anyway....Flash was extremely slow to the point of not being usable at all.

The first site I visited with flash, FF prompted to install missing plugins. Unfortunately
I let it and FF+Flash went slow.

Fixed it by removing all Flash related packages and plugins

Exit Firefox and make sure there is no package manager running.

List the mozilla packages with: dpkg --list *moz*
and remove anything that is named flashplayer-mozilla and swfdec-mozilla

$ sudo dpkg --purge swfdec-mozilla
$ sudo dpkg --purge flashplayer-mozilla

List flash packages with: dpkg --list *flash*
and remove adobe-flashplugin, flashplugin, flashplugin-nonfree, libflashsupport

$ sudo dpkg --purge flashplugin-installer
$ sudo dpkg --purge flashplugin-nonfree
$ sudo dpkg --purge flashplugin-installer
$ sudo dpkg --purge adobe-flashplugin

$ sudo apt-get autoremove

Check if you've got any stray libraries around...delete this one for sure.

$ locate libswfdecmozilla

Install the flash plugin.

$ sudo apt-get install flashplugin-installer

Then enjoy fast Flash and Firefox.
