If you are enjoying playing with your newly installed Apple OS X Lion you might have already noticed a few changes while playing Flash based products or movies, together with other issues in most of Adobe’s software.
Whilst playing anything in Flash Player you might have also noticed an increase in CPU activity when watching a YouTube video or similar, this is thought to be related to the issue OS X Lion has with Flash Player and the disabled hardware acceleration.
Flash Player may cause higher CPU activity when playing a YouTube video possibly related to disabled hardware acceleration. Custom native mouse cursors are not animating properly on Mac 10.7. The Flash Player settings dialog does not respond to mouse clicks. If you find yourself in this state, you can use the “tab” key to change the focus to the “Close” button and use the spacebar to close the dialog. While not all settings are available, you can also use the Flash Player native control panel located in System Preferences.
OS X Lion’s new features such as Autosave, Restore, Versioning, Full Screen Mode, and more multi-touch gestures have also caused a few problems for Adobe products which Adobe is looking to solve in future releases. More information on affected software packages can be found over on the Adobe website: Adobe’s effected lines of software.Filed Under: Apple, Technology News
