has anyone come across browser and system slowness and freezing when loading flash videos on browser?

it happens to my firefox and opera whenever i load a flash video, it starts playing for a bit then slows down (like when one slows a dvd movie) then suddenly system freezes unless i close the browser which or tab which takes a while todo so with cursor movements lagging real bad...

my Mint 11 is updated...

All it does is installs a ppa that will allow you to use a new , more updated flash on x64 systems.

The problem isn't an issue on x32 systems. All ya have to do is fully update x32.
