The plug in container for Adobe Flash eats up 100% of my CPU on a regular basis and I have to go in to task manager and kill the process.

Screen updates become very slow and intermittent. I then start task manager to see what is using either ram or cpu, and invariably it is Plug-in container for Firefox using most of the cpu resources. When I kill the process, I get the message at the top of the browser that Adobe Flash plug-in has crashed.

I understand that Flash is useful/necessary for many applications, but is there a way to limit the resources it uses?
