User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686; rv:2.0b8pre) Gecko/20101204 Firefox/4.0b8pre
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686; rv:2.0b8pre) Gecko/20101204 Firefox/4.0b8pre

While watching flash video on www.newstube.ru (for example http://www.newstube.ru/media/permskij-ehkspress-pervaya-rossijskaya-chastnaya-ehlektrichka) minefield rapidly allocate all memory, print "firefox-bin: Fatal IO error 12 (Невозможно выделить память) on X server :0.0." and hangs completely. Page works fine with firefox 3.6 on same system, youtube.com and dailymotion.com videos work fine with this version of minefield. This problem happens on every newstube.ru video i tried.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to http://www.newstube.ru/media/permskij-ehkspress-pervaya-rossijskaya-chastnaya-ehlektrichka with flash enabled.
2. Video starts automaticly, watch firefox-bin allocating all memory in 10-15 seconds.

Actual Results:  
Video slow down, gnome-system-monitor shows firefox-bin rapidly allocating more an more memory. When there is no memory available minefield prints to terminal "firefox-bin: Fatal IO error 12 (Невозможно выделить память) on X server :0.0." (Cannot allocate memory) and hangs completely.

Expected Results:  
Should work just like firefox 3.6

I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 x86, compiz enabled, nvidia proprietary drivers from ubuntu repositories, adobe flash player from ubuntu reps. System is up to date. 
No other browsers (including ff3.6) seems to have such problem with www.newstube.ru

I've found another page with seems to cause this bug. yandex.ru has music player, which appears when you search for music they have in their database. Music player uses flash. Try this 
1. http://yandex.ru/yandsearch?text=black%20rebel%20motorcycle%20club%20beat%20the%20devil's%20tattoo&lr=213
2. Press play button
Music will start playing and minefield will allocate more and more memory, at some point player will blink black and white, and at last minefield crashes (with submit crash report dialog). Also, minefield print this to terminal: 

###!!! [Child][SyncChannel] Error: Channel error: cannot send/recv

###!!! ABORT: X_GetGeometry: BadDrawable (invalid Pixmap or Window parameter): file ../../../toolkit/xre/nsX11ErrorHandler.cpp, line 190
###!!! ABORT: X_GetGeometry: BadDrawable (invalid Pixmap or Window parameter): file ../../../toolkit/xre/nsX11ErrorHandler.cpp, line 190

It was tested on ubuntu 10.04 32bit, Minefield BuildID: 20101205030316
Same page works fine with other browsers on same machine (e.g chromium or ff3.6)

Marat, do you still see this with newer version of flash and firefox?

I see no significant memory increase over several minutes. (But I am not linux)
 dell vista flash 11,1,102,55 firefox trunk
