    I like Safari 5. I want to keep using Safari, but sadly, I just can't (feels like iPhone 4 all over).

    The thing is, I just can't use Flash in it. Either one of three things happens (mind you not always)

    (1) Safari freezes momentarily or glitches
    (2) Flash plugin quits unexpectedly
    (3) Flash just won't pop up no matter what I do

    And it isn't my computer, because when I switch to Firefox, it works beautifully and much faster actually.

    Now I don't want to have to switch, so is there anything I can do to resolve this? I would really appreciate any help.

    I've seen the symptoms as well.

    Even using AdBlock it causes more crashes than it solves.

    ClickToFlash will help, until you want to access the flash content. Then it will still momentarily freeze when loading (in my experience).
