Schtupid SONY ad killing my firefox on digg

For the last two days either at work or home my processor goes to 100% when I get on the digg home page. I use ubuntu feisty on both. Of course it is a flash ad and well Adobe does not care too much about us linux users. Youtube vids and other flash intensive stuff strains the processor when running in firefox.

Took me a bit to finger out that it was this dam SONY ad. I had to go and get the adblock firefox extension to be able to get on digg.

Works fine in Opera.

another digg user using vista experienced it as well.
