I have this problem which I believe many other people has. Everytime I'm on a website which has some sort of flash content/flash game that needs you to load a high amount of flash files to your computer, it will start running slower and increase the CPU usage of the browser you're using, and later it will crash. It doesn't matter what browser I'm using, neither the version, It's any browser. When the flash content starts loading onto my computer those flash files will end up in my Temporary Internet Files folder (That is if I'm using Internet Explorer) and when it starts doing that it wont stop until you either close it down and start it up again or just keep on playing the flash game or viewing the flash content until it will simply crash. The only difference I know about the crash problem in each browsers is that in the IE browser, when it crashes it will recreate the pages which you were on before the crash happened, in Mozilla Firefox it will just crash and show no error messages at all, neither do IE so I have no idea why I got this problem.
I haven't always had this problem. About two years ago my computer worked fine with no problems when playing flash in any browser. But now I don't know why it keeps on loading more and more flash content until it crashes. I thought it had something to do with the Temporary Internet Files folder, but now I see that it doesn't affect the flash player from crashing if the Temporary Internet Files folder is full or nearly. It's something to do with the CPU usage of the browser. The file size of the browser goes from 200 MB to 1 GB+ and makes it crash like if it was unable to load anymore files. Most people would probably say that It's because I need more RAM in my computer, but it was running fine two years ago so I don't see why it can't run smoothly again.
Anyone got a solution for this? It commonly happens on flash games on Facebook like Farmville, any game with lots of flash content to be loaded.
