  thoughts?  with that plugin installed, firefox immediately starts

That's no news. Macromedia (now Adobe) is good at making bull***t
that eats away your CPU. Installing flashblocker should do the trick
- it only loads the flash plugin if you click on the flash item.

yes!  that did the trick.  i'm surprised no one had suggested that
until now, since the topic of flash had come up more than once.  yee
ha.  i have response.

It has been suggested in the past, probably not to a recent thread though.
