Bug Description

The problem is the same in at least Firefox 3 and Firefox 5. When you watch Youtube videos and either browse to another website while the video is running or want to play another flash video from the YouTube video list, at least the browser freezes for one minute or so, but often the whole system freezes. After that you can only power off. In the most cases the problem appears when you run the browser the first time after booting. And obviously it doesn't occure always but very often. I read about a hack: OverrideGPUValidation=true in /etc/adobe/mms.cfg but this doesn't help.
