Good, Emmanuel.

If you do not need flash, better keeping it disabled, of course. And gnash is a 
reasonable replacement for the not-free-source one.

I have suggested to disable dom.ipc.plugins.enabled (switch "true" to "false" 
in about:config), because the "symptoms" you have described are similar to a 
problem I and others had with version 6.x (or 5.x, can't remember) and later, 
and was caused by *ash plugin.

If you do not mind, just for the sake of others who want to use the *ash 
plugin, please, could you check that enabling the plugin and switching 
dom.ipc.plugins.enabled to false also solves the problem and report to the list 
the result? I am waiting for IceCat-12.0 to do it myself, too.
