I don't want do decrease security but I hear that there are problems with Flash and I am constantly experiencing Lock Up.

Chosen solution

hi rlcriger, you can increase your security by going to the firefox menu ≡ > addons > plugins panel and setting the shockwave flash plugin to always ask - then it won't be executed on all sites you visit per default unless you explicitly enable it. this change will also be deployed to all firefox users via a blocklist entry for vulnerable flash versions shortly.
