well the title says it all pretty much.

I recently purchased a Mac--I'm in love!!! :blink:

Only problem is, if I'm running a flash vid on safari, the comp freezes sometimes. Any ideas why? It's less now than before, but still; I'd rather find a way to get rid of the issue completely if possible.

Someone suggested dl firefox. What do y'all think?

Oh yeah, I have snow leopard in case u were wondering...

I'd try uninstalling the flashplayer.
Then download and install the latest version.
Repair Permissions after installing flashplayer.

It won't hurt to try Firefox.

Just a thought. You do have 90 days of free phone support. Take advantage of it and give an Apple tech a call.
Another is update the software from the blue Apple menu > Software Update.

Check the RAM. also does the freeze happen randomly or on particular sites?

I'd say install Firefox if you can't get it working and maybe even if you can. I don't like the way Safari runs in Snow Leopard. Especially while using LIttle Snitch.
