Flash + minimize video= browser freeze

now ive had this problem on XP before, but this has only recently been happening again. when i play video (usually from blip player), i like to maximize it, but when i minimise it again, the whole browser freezes for a few seconds. the fix use to be to turn off hardwear acceleration but that is not working. does someone know what the problem may be?
