I removed mozplugger and pligins for mplayer and replaced them with the 
xine-plugin. Movie trailers on the apple site did no longer play but the 
problem persisted. Firefox xompletely locked up my PC again with HD flashing 
permanently. The only plugins I have now are Default Plugin, Shockwave Flash 
and Java Plugin. 

Switched to konqueror but I prefer FF (or should I speak in past tence???). 
Other suggestions??
