Crash blame: Mac OS X Lion compatibility with Adobe Flash

By Daniel Chubb - Aug 7, 2011

The issues sounding the new Mac OS X Lion and Adobe Flash are starting to really annoy Apple users, not only are we getting reports of issues with Flash heavy sites, which leads to the Mac CPU running extremely hot and a laptops battery life running out fast, but also problems with Dreamweaver are being reported. This article looks at the issue with Creative Suite 5.5 and OS X Lion 10.7, although we haven’t had problems with our version of Dreamweaver 5.5 but the Lion installation is not without problems.

Watching YouTube videos on the first generation MacBook Air was known for increasing the fan speed, but on the 2011 MacBook Air this is not a problem, until you install OS X Lion. We’ve visited a few sites that run flash advertisements, which have caused our 2011 iMac to completely lockup apart from the mouse pointer. We reported this issue to our readers a few days ago, since then things have become more evident. Each time the computer sleeps and then wakes up again, you can count on a lockup by visiting YouTube or most types of flash content. Having to force the iMac to shutdown can hurt hard drives so we, and our readers are not happy with Apple or Adobe, which leads us to the question: Who should we blame for the freezing on OS X Lion, Adobe or Apple?

The problems we’ve had and our readers have reported are directed heavily towards Adobe flash, and also include the player under OS X 10.7. Have you had enough of crashes on Lion, which until this version has been known as a solid operating system? Apple if you’re listening, get that patch live NOW and if it’s an Adobe issue, then we’d like to see some sort of press release on this. Let us know in the comments if you’ve had issues with Lion, and who is to blame in your opinion.
