Re: mozilla freezing when /dev/dsp busy

This happens because of the Flash plugin. The only ways around is that
I'm aware of are using a sound daemon, getting a second soundcard
(that's what I did), rewriting the flash plugin, or, not going to sites
that use flash.
Of course, you could also figure out how to trick Mozilla into thinking
you've got a flash plugin so it won't ask you to download it, but not
really having it installed, though, this is only an ugly hack.
