Every now and then, you may find that Flash apps are "frozen" or locked up. A quick fix is to issue a pkill npviewer.bin either at a command line, or via the KRunner run command (Alt+F2 by default, but I always remap it Win+R).

That's imho a story of the past, regarding FreeBSD 7.x. I haven't seen any problem with FreeBSD 8 and Flash 10 so far (AMD64 if this makes any difference while using it).

Could be. I'm running 7-STABLE (post 7.2), with linux-f10, 2.6.16 ABI support, and Flash 10.0.42. Every now and then, Flash sites (and sometimes even Google Mail/Reader) will lock up Firefox 3.5 requiring the pkill trick.

Haven't upgraded to 8.x yet at home.
