First of all, wish a Merry Christmas and a happy new year to everyone!

I've being experiencing some issue with OpenSuSE 12.1 (fresh install) specifically when using firefox. When opening certain websites (which I suspect rely heavily on flash), the systems hangs and takes me back to the login screen. As of now, I'm forced to use Chromium which doesn't present the same behavior even though my favorite browser is Firefox.

My system is a HP 6730s laptop with crappy integrated intel graphics. I'm kinda new to Linux OSes, so any help provided would be appreciated.
