If it only happens when you try to view a flash object, you may have a corrupt flash player. Try reinstalling Flash from the Software repositories and try again.

One other thing, are you running the 32 or 64 bit version of Ubuntu?

32 and its not only that it sometimes get slowly well not much but still im afraid to work idk what could happen i tell you about new issues later

Lets figure out this one ok im gonna update the flash plugin to see what happens

Allright i did it but after that i was signed out (WEIRD) it happened 2 times 1 when i was looking a video and the other was when installing Flashplugin again.....

Please tell me if this is because this is: desktop i368 VERSION. not netbook one though my dad told me netbooks are smaller but who knows.....

The flash plugin you are using should be right for your system. Unless you actively searched for a 64 bit Flash plugin and installed it on a 32 bit system, you have the right one.

Have you tried running a flash object in another web browser? It may be a bug in Firefox 4. Try Chromium from the software center.
