Mike, I used that add on a while back and my computer got slow and was hanging up a lot, tried everything else I could think of, and finally thought about it, went in a disabled it and have not had any problem since. Might work fine for you, but keep that in mind.

This site has a link to Adobe's Flash Settings Manager that shows the hidden cookies on your PC, and lets you delete or otherwise manage them.

James,

True, but one can set it to delete those cookies on exit of Firefox. On my computer that only takes about 30 seconds.

Mike, that was the way I had it setup, still had the problem. I like having that capability so will probably try again one of these days and see if the problem comes back.
