Hello everyone,

After the latest Chrome Version 73.0.3683.75 update the flash swf files seem to flicker.

I am using:

Windows 7 Pro

Chrome Version 73.0.3683.75

Flash Player 32.0.0.156

However, we have tested with multiple OS systems, Flash versions and different computers. The common denominator seems to be the Chrome Update.

Hardware Acceleration seems to have something to do with it. When disabled, is not happening as often but content is slower.

We are concerned since our Facebook games are affected. Please try one of our games: https://apps.facebook.com/forestrescuebubble/

Any thoughts or suggestions?

I tried to reproduce this on MacOS 10.14 and Win7 SP1 (on a VM), and I'm not seeing the problem.  I compared the behavior in Chrome M72 and M73, and the seem to be working the same for me.

I've asked my Chrome testing team to take a look.  In the meantime, if you have any additional details (like you're all on the same model of laptop or using the same GPU, that might be interesting).

Also, if you haven't rebooted since Chrome updated, you might just try, just to eliminate any weird possibilities around processes or graphics buffers being in a bad state.  I can't think of a good reason for why that would happen, but it's easy and worth eliminating that class of potential possibilities.
