    Question Safari and FireFox Freezing
    If this is the wrong forum, please forgive me, it's my first post. I have a 15" MacBook Pro, and for whatever reason both Safari and FireFox start freezing whenever I try to load media. For Instance, ESPN video highlites freeze both programs. Has anyone else run into this problem? Any suggestions on how to fix it? The computer itself does not freeze, just the program. Any help would be appreciated.

    Can you tell me what type of applet the browsers try to run when you're loading the media? (flash, java, shockwave, etc.)

    I agree with Nijab3ar, sounds like a flash issue to me. Open Console to look through logs, this should show you the culprit; then, post your results back here.

    To be honest I am not entirely sure. I think it is Java, and I downloaded and installed updates for java yesterday. Not sure how to open the console, but if you give me some direction on it, I will be glad to try and troubleshoot it.

    ESPN uses Adobe flash player. Download from here.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
