Ugh, I _knew_ I should not have replied ;-)

No, I don't have it... I came to that conclusion only because after
installing Gnash my (850MHz PIII) laptop suddenly became irresponsive
and loud-fanned. I noticed Firefox was the responsable process, then
uninstalled Gnash and continued with my business. All in all, I hate
animations coming along where I don't explicitly call them, and most
web pages have at least one bothering Flash element...

I have a habit of opening tens of pages and reading them according to
my free time, so tracking which .swf is the culprit is more work than
what I'm willing to.

I'm sorry... I don't expect to be able to pinpoint the offending pages soon.
