This question already has an answer here:

Pages like this that have many embedded videos, freeze Ubuntu for a long time, then Flash crashes.

Is this just a Ubuntu 64-bit problem? Do I need more than my current 2gb ram? http://www.deanstalk.net/deanstalk/video/

I'm surprised that it can completely freeze up Firefox, since Firefox uses a separate process for plugins? Should this be reported as a bug, in Firefox, or Ubuntu?

This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

Honestly if you look here, people everywhere experience this (including me), on higher and lower end pc's, it's most probably something Adobe should add to the top of their priority list but HTML5 is also something web-publishers should start adding to theirs, too..

Sometimes my Firefox shuts down or experiences horrific lag and I'm on a dual core Intel with 4gb RAM.
