    Are you using a binary driver from ATI or NVIDIA? I experienced similar problems (not as bad though) when using an nvidia binary driver (nvidia), the problem went away when I used open source nvidia driver (nv) but I lost the good 3d rendering capabilities so I stuck with the much newer nvidia binary driver. Have a look in /etc/X11/xorg.conf and find out what driver you're using, also make sure you're using the lastest version of flash (version 9).

    Good luck,

    You are using the open source nvidia driver, maybe you could try the closed source driver from nvidia. There are instructions on how to install it here:

    Check your version of flash here (above the about button):

    If you're still using 7 upgrade to 9, it's really worth it. Get it here (you'll probably want the rpm):

    Sorry but I haven't used msn messenger in a while, feel free to email me at nikosapi[@]
