I have a problem which is similar to the problems mentioned on this
thread.  Firefox displays most pages just fine: it puts them up quickly
and scrolls them smoothly.  But some pages use an enormous amount of CPU
(the Gnome CPU meter shows 100%), even when they are not actually being
displayed, i.e. are minimized or completely covered.  Which obviously
interferes with anything else I'm trying to do with the computer  It
looks like most of this is caused by Adobe's Flash plugin.  Sometimes
the heavy CPU usage persists even after Firefox is exited; then I have
to kill the flash process explicitly.

This is on a 32-bit version of Firefox on an AMD 64-bit system.
