    Hello,

    I recently cleared the harddisk of my MBP (C2D 2.4Ghz, 4 GB Ram, July 2007)
    and put Snow Leopard (10a432) on it. (so clean install)

    The problems I had with Leopard before installing SL were: kernel_task uses full CPU when firewire attached / fans would come on all the time, even if the CPU was cool enough.

    Those problems are STILL THERE in Snow Leopard.

    But now, I got even MORE problems! On idle, Firefox 3.5.2 uses around 30% CPU. When playing a youtube/vimeo/whatever movie in EITHER Safari OR Firefox, it is really choppy and CPU goes up to maximum, the fans come on really loud, etcetera.

    I know that the Flash Player isn't really optimized on OSX, but COME ON... I didn't have this in Leopard.

    Is there any way to revert back to Leopard without having to install it all YET AGAIN!?

    You started off by saying you clean installed, so what do you think the answer to this question is?

    Ok... fair enough.
    But does anyone know why my Flash Player is acting so weird?

    Flash has always sucked under OS X. The only thing I can recommend is update Flash or use Silverlight.
