    Any site with Flash on it... crash crash crash crash crash. It's debilitating my ability to surf or be productive. I tried uninstalling, reinstalling, over and over and over, to no avail. Does anyone have a solution to this? I'm browsing with my plugins off. Blech!

    Thanks!

    Don't blame ESPN (although many people blame it because espn.com is set to be the default webpage for many users (including myself)

    It's an Adobe Flash issue with the Apple OSX operating system.

    Adobe will blame Apple. Apple will blame Adobe.

    This is why I wish they force computer software makers liable for faulty software (instead of making us check the box on those lengthy EULA agreements before we can install the software)

    Yes, I've been having the issue with lots of sites with both FireFox and Safari... not fun when you get the spinning ball of death on your brand new MacBook every 5 minutes...

    After I rebooted and didn't go to ESPN.com I haven't had a problem on any of the other sites I had problems on before, youtube, freep.com, macforums, etc. The second I go to ESPN.com and it freezes and so do the other sites.
