Flash | Improve Flash Performance & Frame Rate in Firefox Using Low Quality Flash ExtensionIn the recent builds Flash, we have witnessed a notable performance improvement in particular related to the hardware acceleration. But despite these performance improvements flash performance can be quite taxing for the older hardware. These older PCs usually struggle to play many flash games, applications built in flash and even many flash heavy sites cause trouble when loaded on low end systems. There is really not much we can do expect to upgrade the hardware i.e. processor, RAM or the entire PC. However, if you are using the Firefox to play the flash games/apps or browsing the flash heavy websites there are still some options available.

Low Quality Flash is such an extension that approaches the problem of low performance of flash from a different perspective. Basically it modifies the JavaScript on HTML pages to alter OBJECT and EMBED tags on a page setting Adobe Flash objects to "Low Quality." This can vastly improve performance on lower-powered platforms like older computers, cheap netbooks, and cellphones using Firefox Mobile. Latest version of the Low Quality Flash even includes an option to turn-on the medium quality flash in contrast to the low quality flash which is a compromise but might be suitable for some users which consider the contents rendered in low quality to be really not acceptable but medium quality might be ok for them as a good compromise. This is because changing the quality of the flash as done by this Firefox extension can improve the performance (or frame rate) of the flash content but it will also reduce the rendering quality of this content, and it might be very noticeable in some cases depending on the content that a user is viewing. In any case, this is an attractive option for the low-end PC users or for those users using flash in Firefox Mobile version.
