Angry Crappy KDE when using Firefox on a Flash website


I'm having a little problem and i'm very curios if anyone else ran into it. I'm using an updated Fedora Core 3. I've tried this with KDE 3.3.2 and KDE 3.4. When running a Firefox browser (1.0.2 in my case) and pointing it to a flash website.. i've encountered a very strange behavior from KDE. System is slowing down a little and when trying to navigate from the keyboard in the KDE start menu. Kde makes some pauses and then jumps menu items. I'm using a Nvidia Geforce 6200 video card on PCIexpress with latest nvidia drivers 7167(all patches applied). Do u have any ideas what might be causing this behavior?

Thanks all in advance...

The flash plugin. If it works fine before you access flash, then maybe running flash is draining your system resources and kde becomes sluggish.

Ok.. I've supposed the same thing... but is it something normal..? My system is not a weak one .. CPU is an 3800+ AMD Athlon64, 1GB RAM, 1TB RAID0... I've found some third party flash plug-in... Does anyone uses it? Can i find any workarounds for this problem?
