    I'm running 10.6.4 with the newest flash 10.1, and when I load a page on safari or firefox with a flash video on it on my iMac the scrolling on the page doesn't work and the video takes about 5 minutes before I can press play. I have tried running different versions or flash (uninstalling old ones and things) but nothing fixes it. Is anyone else having issues or any idea how to fix it?

    No problems here. Flash runs great on the sites I use. I mostly use Firefox.

    No issues here, with Flash installed on a 2010 iMac running OS X 10.6.4.

    For some reason, Adobe always installs the Flash plugin with incorrect permissions. Have you tried repairing permissions and then restarting a browser?

    same problem here, I don't know what to do. Every time there's flash content the CPU usage will first be high, like 50%, and everything works.
    Then the CPU usage drops to about 10% or less and firefox becomes unresponsive.
    I don't have an iMac though, I have an early 2008 macbook pro.
