Right I have just reinstalled MInt 32 bit and the problems still exists. I haven't done anything to the flash plugin, should I update the flash plugin to the one released by adobe?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Yes, you should. Flashplugin-nonfree and flashplayer-nonfree are problematic on 32-bit Mint systems as well but adobe-flashplugin generally performs much better. But you do not have to download the plugin from Adobe's site as there is already an up-to-date version available in the repository. These commands should do the chores for you:
Code: Select all
sudo su

Code: Select all
apt-get --purge remove flashplayer-nonfree flashplugin-nonfree; apt-get update; apt-get install adobe-flashplugin; exit

Thanks a lot.
I'm def. seeing an improvement in performance after moving from 64bit to 32bit. Firefox uses around 200NG RAM instead of the previously 6-700MB. Not to mention VirtualBox runs much smoother.
