I've already posted this to the bug reporter at adobe:

Works nicely for me with Konqueror (on Centos 4.4). Works not so nicely with Firefox
Which isn't to say it doesn't work, it's just,... odd. Playing a .swf file 
on my local hard drive by doing "open | file" in Firefox works fine. Browsing
to a web sitre with flash files on it is weird: Firefox gets horirbly slow,
has trouble rendering the page fully, may lag for many seconds (or even minutes) 
before starting the video. Switching to another desktop and back seems to 
expedite things, but hititng the BACK arrow or attempting to close the browser 
is also extrmeely slow. Once Flash starts playing, though, flash itself seems
to work fine, i t's just the Firefox browser that seems to be very slow.

anybody else seen this?
