      Code:
ln -s /tmp ~/.macromedia
might be one step of the solution.
Also clearing your cache from time to time would help

Thanks all, I've already linked .macrocrap to /tmp, so that all browsers benefit!
Anyway this annoying flash is getting day by day more and more unwanted...
hope that html5 and apple mafia will kill it soon... Very Happy

Or gnash/LightSpark gets to the point they become SANE flash replacements

Flash is buggy, badly designed and just plain painful

For flash cookies I manage and delete my cookies through the Settings Manager > http://www.macromedia.com/support/docum ... ger06.html
