What's the exact name of that extension? I'm not seeing one called "Disable HTML5".[/quote]

Ended up installing v. 29. Now all sites are accessible and no problems with Flash. Thanks for the relies.

I'm using Iron v32 on an old WinXP Intel P4 (1 core / 2 threads) system - works well - but CPU chokes on HTML5 videos

I installed extension - Disable Youtube HTML5 Player

I can now watch YouTube videos OK
This works with both the NPAPI extension on SR Iron and PPAPI extension on Google Chrome.

Update: Iron 39 is much much better than 37 and 38. I would actually call it quite stable indeed.

I run 1200-1300 tabs and the only reason I have to restart the browser is because the parent chrome.exe seems to be leaking handles over time and reaches 8000+ handles and approaches 1.7+GB VM (Commit) used which is nearly exhausting the 2GB 32 bit limit on my windows XP workstation. But this is after several days maybe a week of usage. Tolerable since I don't know how to report such a leak in a useful manner where it would get solved.

Try downloading the new PPAPI installer for Flash 16; it's intended for Opera, Yandex Browser, and other Chromium derivatives that don't have Flash bundled the way Chrome does, because this year Chromium will end support for NPAPI: https://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/otherversions/
