    Recently I have been getting app freezes in Safari 3.2.1, Firefox 3.0.7, and NetNewsWire and have ha to force quit them. At first I thought I might have a user profile issue or something. I tested in another "clean" profile and got the same error so basically narrowed it down to Flash. I went to adobe's site and updated to the latest player. I wasn't too out of date since I have CS4 installed. That seemed to improve things a bit. But I still was getting freezes and decided to install Flash Block extension for Firefox which caused it to not freeze...unless I clicked on the flash bit that froze it before which when I knew it was Flash causing the crashes. It isn't all flash. YouTube video is fine. But some videos on Gizmodo or Collegehumor seem to be doing it today. So seems to be maybe the embedded flash video player/version being used. But it just started happening in the last couple days. Anyone else experiencing this type of problem?

    I'm using Adobe Flash Player version

    I've tried using the Adobe uninstaller and then reinstalling the latest version, repaired permissions, I still get freezes which require me to force quit. It doesn't matter which browser I use, (Safari, Firefox, NetNewsWire, Flock) same result and always on the same page. The one that I've been using to test is collegehumor.com.
