Silverlight 5 will support the browser versions listed on this page through 10/12/2021, or though the support lifecycle of the underlying browsers, whichever is shorter. As browsers evolve, the support page will be updated to reflect levels of compatibility with newer browser versions.

I'm not sure how this notion of "dead" came about.

Also, you don't need any plug-in unless you use websites that take advantage of them.
So the crossed out line is a bit asinine.

The Adobe plugin is 32-bit only so it won't work in 64 bit browsers. You can use Mozilla's Javascript-based pdf viewer which is included in Firefox 19 or browsers bases upon this release (the name shall not be mentioned here). Waterfox 19 which is expected sometime after the latest nasty compiler bugs are solved will very likely also include the js viewer.

Even if not, and you use Adobe, go to Tools, Options, and set all PDF related options to "always ask".

Then go to Tools, Addons, and disable any PDF-reader plugins that aren't native to Waterfox.

Yes, the js viewer is rather simplistic and doesn't replace a full fledged plugin. Personally for me it's no loss since I like to save a pdf and view it in an external lightweight viewer like SumatraPDF (I hope no one has a problem with this advertisement :-)) rather than a plugin.

Actually one of the reasons for Mozilla trying to abandon the 64bit builds was poor plugin support and users' confusion around this fact, you have to live with some drawbacks that if you want a 64bit based browser :-o

Edit: It's interesting that Opera has a way to run 32bit plugins in a 32bit sandbox even with their 64bit browser flavor (currently still in development, let's see about the webkit transition), but afaik Mozillla hasn't gone that route.

When you uninstalled did you remove your existing profiles? It may be something in your profile that's causing the stutter. You can just create a temporary profile to test addons or use safe mode. Also, it may be a worth a try to verify the stutter in Firefox.

Are you referring to me? If yes, yes I did remove everything including my profiles. Then when I started opening multiple tabs, the stutter is there again.

I'm guessing this is also happening with Firefox?
