Still having this problem. Some websites are un useable. Is this ever going to be fixed? Its been almost a year! mac os x 10.6.8 (not upgradable) opera 24, flash upgraded to latest version.
Try updating to Opera 25 from here: ftp://ftp.opera.com/pub/opera/desktop/25.0.1614.71/mac/ , this should still work on OS X 10.6.
Note that future releases of Opera (26 and newer) will need OS X 10.7 or newer.

I know that Flash Player on OS X has had a performance bug for over 8 years (It is more visible on older Macs, on my Late 2006 Mac, Flash Player causes a huge cpu spike (360 resolution videos or higher video would cause a CPU spike and the CPU temp would be around 200º f), I have tried poking Adobe on Twitter. I think part of the issue is the lack of OpenGL work in Flash Player, Adobe has a lot more DirectX work for Flash Player than OpenGL.
Why I have been using click to play plug ins, is to try to avoid the spikes
The other thing to try is a reinstall of Flash Player, (remove Flash Player, then grab a fresh installer), also try clearing the browser cache (might have a corrupted cache file)
I have also noticed some sites use of Flash Player (sometimes it is the video player) are different than others in terms of the Flash Player cpu spikes and the slowness.
Why Open the Web?
Despite the connecting purpose of the Web, it is not entirely open to all of its users.
When used correctly, HTML documents can be displayed across platforms and devices.
However, many devices are excluded access to Web content.

The update to opera 25 seems to have fixed the slow mac pop ups. Hopefully it will stay that way. Thanks avi.
I didn't know there was a update to 25, it always said opera was up to date.... hmmmmmm.
chas4, flash is the overall problem. Its sucks on all my web browsers, and not just on the macs. Adobe has had plenty of time to fix the issues and they seem to do nothing about it. I wish more websites would phase flash out, as there are much better options out there already.
