SWF crashes when unloaded in IE7 and IE8; non standard code and iframes?

A colleague is finding that a page on a server that includes a SWF can load smoothly and be viewed in its entirety, but it generates a JavaScript error message whenever that page is unloaded, but only in IE7 and IE8. (Line 1, Char 1, "Access is denied", Code 0, URL=SWF file name). Firefox 3.6 and IE6 have no problems at all. For some reason, the page has been designed to load the SWF directly into an iframe's src attribute instead of using the usual OBJECT and EMBED tags and associated parameters within a separate HTML page. Is this unloading problem simply IE7 and IE8 being extra-vigilant about security with non-standard code? [more inside]

You didn't really want to post that to MeFi, did you? Oops!

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? [more inside]

Flash MX 2004

Flash MX 2004 crashes on startup, suspect font issue, as the last thing the splash screen says is "initializing fonts". DreamWeaver, Fireworks and Freehand work fine,
I had been messing around with the fonts on my XP pro system lately, trying to get Extensis Suitcase working right, so I moved most of my fonts out of the windows/fonts folder (except the ones with a big red A, as suggested in suitcase's manual), but much wierdness ensued. A mess of 0 byte font files appeared in windows/fonts, which I managed to get rid of after removing windows/fonts special properties, and later restoring them. Have moved fonts back into windows/fonts, but Suitcase reports about 16 postscript fonts as "missing", but these same fonts don't show up either in windows/fonts, or under the font lists in The Font Thing or OT1 Font Manager. OT1 reports a "temp" font named "Sydnie" which doesn't show up anywhere else.
Have tried fixing registry, using OT1's tools and much else, to no avail. Have reinstalled Windows and Flash a number of times. Windows explorer is a little off, too, locks up, etc.
