    I have a 24" iMac and am having problems with Safari freezing the whole computer when I go to certain sites. Its inconsistent but, I think Flash ads are the culprit. is one site that has done it repeatedly. The whole computer looks like its being shocked by electricity then it has to be hard rebooted. Unpleasant when you have a dozen apps running and work going on. Anybody have any ideas? This occurs almost daily. I haven't seen it happen before in Firefox but, I don't use it as often.

    I had a similar experience a few days ago. I went to some band's myspace page on accident (I have been having trouble with flash more than ever recently) and Safari froze while loading the music player. It's happened before, but this time the entire computer froze and the screen went black. Not good for those external HDs.

    Safari and Flash just don't seem to play well.

    Click to Flash does the trick

    Downloaded Click to Flash and it has solved the problem.
