    I use my iBook only at school and i can't use safari as the vpn doesnt like it for some reason, thus I use FireFox. Although I prefer Firefox over Safari and use it on my PC at home, for some reason whenever I open a page consisting of Flash content, Firefox just locks up and I have to force quit it.

    Any ideas?

    Have you applied all the updates and downloaded the last flash from Apple?

    Have you repaired permissions??? ;) jk

    You could always try and delete firefox,
    get the newest version from their site,
    and re-install it and update it again.
    Thankfully, that doesn't take too long.

    Gone but not forgotten.
    The flash plug-in is most of the problem. I rarely have it lock up, but it's consistent across most browsers, although I think Apple is jumping through hoops to keep Safari from locking up.

    That's not a bad idea. After installing the Flash plug-in, there is generally some permissions problem.
