    So macrumors peeps, as the title reads, whenever i open a web browser and go to either espn or youtube or anything that flash associates itself with, the windows hangs or freezes and the beachball cursor comes up forcing me to force quit. I am currently using a Macbook 10.5.8 and Firefox 3.6.3 and Safari 4.0.5. Also i have restarted my macbook, updated it completely, tried reinstalling Adobe Flash Plug-in, done the disk utility repair disk (even though idk if i did it right) and i have been surfing the web for two days to find a solution... i couldn't find one.. I would greatly appreciate it if someone could assist me and solve this problem.. Thank You Very Much!!

    Wow - I'm having exactly the same problem - any page with flash and I get the beachball. Using Safari 4.0.5. Done all the updates and it's still happening! Is this Adobe's revenge over the Iphone?

    Open up Disk Utility and click "Repair Permissions"
