That's an old release, 0.8.10 is out. I'd try a newer release as it has better support for limiting the cpu load in Firefox/Iceweasel when that window isn't active.

when trying to view flash videos sometimes i only get a white square, and sometimes it works fine but after the video has finished playing, the cpu keeps working hard and a lot of memory is still allocated.
killing gnash stops the processors hard work and frees the memory.
some details:
0.8.8-5 on debian. both on 32 and 64 bit.
happens on a Core i7 870 with a GeForce GTX 460 and on an atom n280

i really admire your work for the community.
if there are details i've left out please let me know.
