No lock here, but the memory usage went nuts as seen from task manager. It would zip back and forth between anywhere from 30MB to 200MB. It finally loaded and memory went back to normal. WinXP Moz 2003062004 Confirming and changing the summary.

Summary: Loading of Flash animation on given URL: Locks/Freezes/Hangs Mozilla → Loading Flash animation causes erratic memory and CPU usage
I tried it once again on my machine (512meg 1.2GHz) using the same Flash and Mozilla version as originally posted, and waited 2 minutes on broadband, then the page came up. But one thing I noticed now that the page is viewable, other then the "erratic memory and CPU usage", the Java Script or Applet running the Menu Links up above the Flash Animation displays their Menus behind the Flash Animation (HOME, ABOUT US, COURCES, etc). Thus you can't see the menu content.
The problem seems to have fixed itself (WinXP Moz 2003080304 Flash 6.0 R79). No hang at all, memory doesn't go nuts, and page only takes about 15% processor usage (which I'm assuming is normal for a Flash animation?). How does it work for you, Curtis?
Ahh... Yup, seems to load nice and speedy now. I didn't change a thing on my system. Still using Win98SE, Flash 6.0 r79, Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030624. Maybe the webmaster tweeked something? However, even though this may have to do with their website, the menus don't work. The Java Script or Applet running the Menu Links up above the Flash Animation displays their Menus behind the Flash Animation (HOME, ABOUT US, COURSES, CORPORATE TRAINING, etc). Thus you can't see the menu content.
If the menu continues to be a problem, file a new bug. Marking WFM.
