Chrome Click to Play Flash Player Bug?

This content 8 years old. Please, read this page keeping its age in mind along with the fact technology changes fast and the information on this page me be outdated, not best practice, or plain wrong.

There is an article outlining how to help increase stability of your Chrome browser by making plugins Click to Play. This is good and dandy but what I’ve seen is that even after you allow a plugin (flash player in this case) to run, it remains loaded after you navigate away from the page or close the tab.

Here is a video demonstration of the process I use to enable Click to Play and show what is happening.

    No video in Chrome nor Firefox. That click to play works great, I guess.

  2. The video on this post does not work or are you referring to the fact that enabling Click to Play for plugins works?
