Is there a way to prevent stupid Flash ads from eating 40, 50, 100% of
my CPU? This is a big problem as there's no easy way to stop them
(unchecking "Play" and "Loop" don't do anything).
Uninstalling the Flash plugin would be one approach worth to consider...
I don't have this problem on that other OS.
Unfortunately this is a problem specific to the Linux Flashplugin. Since
it's closed source, there's nothing we can do about it.
That said, you may want to use a Flash click-to-play approach. Read the
mail I sent in reply to Ryan's question today for instructions.
If you have any more questions, don't hesitate to ask!
