    My Intel-based iMac (purchased in January 07) crashes on MySpace BAND (not regular user) pages. The page gets hung up loading what I think is the Shockwave player (the media player that plays the band songs) then the browser MUST be quit - can't even navigate away from the page that's trying to load. Happens in Safari and Firefox. Have done the Rosetta check box, have downloaded and installed (repeatedly) the latest Flash (9.0.60.120) and Shockwave players, have made sure that Quicktime is not playing flash.

    Here are examples of problematic pages - that square-shaped 4-song player on the right (usually on the right) gets hung up and crashes browser:

    If it is because of shockwave it's because shockwave isn't a UB yet. If you run get-info for safari command+i you can tell safari to open in rosetta. That may fix your problem but then you're running safari under rosetta. haha.
