Firefox problem

Firefox works good in Gnome.
But in KDE, it keeps hang on when the webpage load flash.
I don't know why!

Do you have any clue?

I am not aware of any speicifc problem. But I would suggest that you open up a shell and run the 'top' command to get a feel for any resource that might be getting over utilized (i.e. is processor useage, or memory useage shooting up when the poor behavior occours?)

I hope that this helps get you on the right path.
