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!
