I have a new a new macbook air 13", just upgraded to mountain lion and flash seems to be crashing quicktime.


For example: I play some youtube no problem, then all of a sudden one will only play the sound, then display something ugly like this:

this will extremely slow the computer. I will go to try to play a quicktime movie stored on my hdd and it will also have the same problem. This is obviously using no flash at all, but the movie playing on my computer is stuffed. I quit my browsers to try to fix the problem.


I've tried uninstalling flash and installing previous versions but they all seem to have the same problem (tried 3 different versions so far, will keep trying)


Not sure if this a problem with the new graphics in my mba (intel graphics 4000) needing a driver update, or quicktime in mountain lion being brought down by flash.


is anyone else experiencing this?

MacBook Air (13-inch, Mid 2012), OS X Mountain Lion
