I've just installed Flex Developer 3 on OS X 10.5.7 (2.4 GHz and 4 GB RAM). When I run the "Hello World" application from "A Beginner's Guide" by Davis and Phillips, it takes about 15 seconds to display "Hello World".
The result is the same when I'm using Firefox 3.5.1 or Safari 4.0.2.
When I export the project and run the html filebin-debug, I get a delay of about 11 seconds.
When I export the project and run the html file in bin-release, I get "Hello World" in about 1 second.
I also noticed a similar delay when opening database driven applications. The browser reads "Loading", I get the PWOD, and then the form appears.O Once the page loads and Flash displays, the application loads data very quickly (amazingly quickly!)
In contrast, when I FF 3.5.1 on XP SP3 under Fusion 2.0.5 and open the html files in debug and release, they load in 1 second.
Is there a patch to apply or something I need to set to get rid of the long delay on OS X?
Thanks in advance,

Additional information - after clicking Run, the progress window reads "Waiting for Flash Player to connect to debugger". The barber pole spins and the percentage completion increments very, very slowly - something on the orde of about 1% per second.
The solution was to right click on the application in the browser and stop it from connecting to a remote debugger.
I've been working on a few different applications which were data-driven apps, some of which were running on a remote machine. Hence the need to connect to a debugger on the hosted box.
Once I changed the debugger settings, the situation was solved.
