    I keep getting an alert on my computer about the forums trying to run flash when I go to various threads, including ones that have no videos. This is something new that just started happening. What's going on?

    Not sure but Firefox is blocking flash until Adobe fixes a flaw in the plugin

    Ah, that'd be it then. Though I'm still curious why even this thread is attempting to run flash.

    It's a thing Firefox is doing even on pages that don't have anything Flash related on them. Mildly annoying, but eh, hopefully Adobe thinks about getting their security situation together.

    The attachment uploader uses flash to show you the progress and also que multiple files for upload (otherwise you have to do it one at a time).

    If you go to http://dragon-hoard.com/account/preferences you can disable the flash uploader if you so wish.

    Ok, cool. :3 I'll just leave it on, since I know what it is.
