IE8 on Windows 7 6-bit adobe flash version 10,2,152,26 installed.
I've noticed that if I have an IE window open and I keep reusing it to load different tabs it seems to cause a memory leaks at some point. Even if I only maintain 3-5 tabs max after extended use pages start to flicker and adobe flash plugins no longer load and instead show a gray exclamation point. If I open a new instance of IE often, this does not happen. Any idea what causes this? This has happened throughout many versions of flash so i'm wondering if it may be a flash sites I happen to go to (AOL Radio) or some kind of memory leak in internet explorer or the adobe plugin.
