problems with flash in firefox

I've been using firefox for quite a while now, and there's one thing that bothers me. Whenever I use a flash page, whether it be a website made with flash or a game, there's some weird kind of lag going on. It'll play the flash, but after 1 second the entire thing will pause for about half a second and then continue on without a hitch. It happens everytime the page does something, so say if you were to mouse over a button that made an action happen in the flash, if the action took longer than 1 second ther pause would be there and after the pause nothing would go wrong, until another action happens. I have no idea what to do!! I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling flash numerous times, but nothing changes! I'm using firefox version 1.0.

I have a similar problem except mine just that if I browse to a site with Flash the entire browser locks up for like 5 secs, on a 3GHz P4 with 1.5GB RAM it's not a hardware issue stupid Flash

I'm also having some major problems with Flash under Linux (FC3), and Firefox (1.0). Just installed the latest Flash plugin RPM from -- that doesn't change anything. Some flash sites don't have too much trouble, just a little bit of lag.. but some, for example in the "organizr" section, runs REALLY slow and basically brings my entire system, 3.2GHz P4 with 1GB memory, to a standstill. Once it hung for a few minutes and I had to cycle the power. What's up with this??
