I have a swf on the page that's performing poorly, taking a lot of CPU mostly for rendering. While that's running my 1px by 1px swf handling socket data is stopping execution. Enter frame events do not occur and timers also don't fire in that socket swf. However, ExternalInterface calls to the swf work. If the poorly performing swf is removed from the page or it starts performing better the socket swf will suddenly get enter frames and timer events. This doesn't happen on Chrome but does occur on Safari and FF.
Any insight would be very appreciated!
