    I tried the beta, but all the content @ sites like cnet.com, and the macromedia site would not show. I don’t get any type of warning or errors. Just empty areas where the flash content should be. Looks like I’ll be using 7 until I figure out whats going on

    Hopefully they are going to release a 64-bit version for Linux too. Because I’m still doing without Flash on a 64-bit Firefox, and I don’t like the precompiled 32-bit ones.

    aha, I figured it out, and I just to let ya know, it was the FireFox extentsion, Adblock, causing the problem. You have to disable obj-tab option under adblocks extension preferences.

    heres a link to a the posts @ mozillazine that helped me fix it

    hope that helps someone!

    In my opinion, performance is still a bit slow if the Flash 8 swf uses too many filters and a lot of transparency, but it’s gotten better!
