I use Iceweasel with Debian Squeeze. When I browse some websites, e.g. http://www.dedoimedo.com, it sometimes happens that the gtk-gnash program uses more than 90% of my CPU resources. When I close that website, the gtk-gnash sleeps. If I open the website again and browse it there will be no activity by gtk-gnash for a while.
The gtk-gnash activity at that level looks odd.
- What is gtk-gnash responsible for?
- Is the high level activity of gtk-gnash safe (e.g. for the CPU)?
- Is there a more methodical solution (besides the one mentioned above) for making gtk-gnash calm?
