If I browse videos at, the webpage renders but Camino hangs right before video playback.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Browse to
Actual Results:  
I get the "spinning beach ball of death", and sometimes Camino outright crashes.

Expected Results:  
The embedded video loads and begins playing.

I don't have any trouble with or similar websites, so it's possible there is a different cause. Also, I didn't encounter this problem with any of the 2.0 betas.

This appears to be problem with Flash and not Camino as I'm experiencing this issue with both Safari and Firefox.

I profiled Camino while it was hanging and this is the result:

A quick search reveals others are having the same issue. Aside for stupid answers, there doesn't seem to be a clear resolution.

Rebooting magically fixed this. In any event, this isn't a Camino issue.
