it's the 64-bit flash plugin that's crippling firefox



  i've complained a number of times on the fedora-test list about how
excruciatingly slow firefox was (top sometimes showing it taking >100%
of the CPU).  and just now, it was *again* over 100% when the next
process was using, like 3%.

  so i tossed the 64-bit flash plugin, and restarted firefox, and top
now shows that it's sitting nicely at around 4%.  i restore the plugin
(to ~/.mozilla/plugins), and restart firefox, and CPU is back up to
89% already.  it's that freaking plugin that's causing all this grief.

  thoughts?  with that plugin installed, firefox immediately starts
sucking up CPU even when i'm not playing anything.  it looks like
there simply has to be a flash embedded in a displayed page for this
to happen.
