The latest versions of Firefox and
Safari that can run on my Mac Intel G4 tower (OS X 10.4.11) keep crashing when I open more than one video in separate tabs or windows on YouTube or Hulu. The problem isn't consistent, but it does seem to happen when I have at least 7 or 8 tabs open at once. Can anyone help me solve this?

I'm not sure if it's the flash plug-in. This doesn't seem to happen when I have multiple flash slideshows running in different tabs, just videos. If it is the plugin, is there anything I can do?
Also, if you're going to suggest I use a different browser, please only do so if it can run in OS X 10.4. Chrome doesn't qualify, and this is an office computer whose OS cannot be upgraded by me. TIA!
