Try running Flash in 32 bit mode. Right or control click the Safari icon in the Applications folder, then click: Get Info In the Get Info window click the black disclosure triangle next to General so it faces down. Select 32 bit mode. Also, (in that same window) make sure Safari is NOT running in Rosetta.
Really? I've had the exact opposite problem. Firefox and Chrome freeze up (and not just the browser, but the entire system forcing annoying hard-restarts.) It seems, to me anyway, that Safari 5 is the only browser not affected. (Exes fingers that it keeps up.) This problem surfaced as soon as I upgraded to 10.1.
*Although I think Apple should be a little more understanding of Flash's dominance, my experience with 10.1 has been less than stellar. Methinks its time to re-examine my indifference to HTML5.*
Update 10.6.4 included an out-of-date version of FlashPlayer. Try deleting it and installing the latest one from Adobe even if the version number appears to be the same even if it has the same version number as the one you have:
The latest version of Adobe FlashPlayer can be obtained from here:
(You can check here: http://www.adobe.com/products/flash/about/ to see which version you should install for your Mac and OS.
You should first uninstall any previous version of Flash Player, using the uninstaller from here (make sure you use the correct one!):
and also that you follow the instructions closely, such as closing ALL applications first before installing. You must also carry out a permission repair after installing anything from Adobe.
