    So I've had macs for years, I usually run safari or firefox depending on my mood. Today my browsers started crashing every time I opened up a page that was flash based. I deleted flash and all of it's components restarted my computer and tried ESPN.com one of the sights I couldn't load and it loaded just fine, so I re-downloaded flash and tried espn again and again it crashed. along with any other flash based web sights what can I do?

    It appears to be a problem with ESPN.com.

    After I restarted my MacBook and didn't go to espn.com, all the heavy flash based sites worked. Then I went to ESPN.com and then they stopped.

    There is a thread on this over at Apple Support. With a couple of different workarounds. Restarting and avoiding ESPN.com worked for me though.

    I'm getting the same issue - Flash just crashes.

    Makes it pretty tough to use the web - that's why I'm working on IE on a VM right now.

    I wonder if there's some pissing match going on between Apple and Adobe...
