I had the same problem using firefox 3, flash movies works fine at the beginning, but then it starts to use all the cpu and I have to close firefox and start again.

Can you please follow the instructions at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MozillaTeam/Bugs so we can see what is going on. Please try this with gnash as well. the gnash crash report will give us a better understanding of the issue since we dont and cant provide flashplugin debugging packages.

Lucus im assuming you are using flashplugin-nonfree
Foampeace you are using gnash. for what your dbg shows. can you pleas use the extension .txt instead of .log as LP maeks .log unreadable or atleast harder to read.
Changing package to mozilla-plugin-gnash
This cant be confirmed using different packages. Lucus if you are using same package can you please also attach a back trace.

allow me to quickly confirm that even using a brand new profile and that in safe-mode I am having the same problem at times as Foampeace. In my case I am at this moment accessing with that other profile the website


with its several videos (presumably all trying to load simultaneously since I have no flashstop activated due to the safe-mode.

Therefore the file gnash-dbg.log has been growing unceasingly from at first (a few minutes ago) roughly 255 MB into over 500 MB by now. (I have had even a 2.1 GB large such file before, which I deleted and replaced with a new empty text file to regain that space.

I will for a short time refrain from doing that again, in case there be questions about that files content from any of you. However, I am uploading only the first few lines and the last several lines of an extract of that file for now.
