Yesterday I uninstalled mozplugger and nspluginwrapper thinking they
might be the culprit. That didn't help.

Today I uninstalled completely java-openjdk-plugin and made Firefox use 
Sun's Java plugin ( by creating the link in mozilla/
plugins (no alternatives). 

Now CNN works beautifully (knock on wood)! Another site I was having 
troubles with also works. It displays a table with 
currency prices in real time, which I wasn't able to view previously. The 
only site that I care about that I'm still having problems with is http:// The fault may be with the page itself (like made for IE 
or something). 

I imagine others who reported problems with flash are already using Sun 
Java, and still have those problems. Uninstalling mozplugger and/or 
nspluginwrapper on top of using Sun Java may or may not make a difference.
