Bad Flash: can K-Meleon be made fault tolerant?

Some sites with Flash content that make my copy of K-Meleon freeze and/or crash:

www.terrypratchett.co.uk/books
apps.new.facebook.com/facebookshelf/ (after logging in)
last.fm

And Yahoo Groups recently added a Flash picture browser which makes K-Meleon hungr for dozens/hundreds of MB of RAM and causes it to freeze.

The number of sites with badly coded Flash increases, and there's no way we can make 'em clean up their code. Therefore K-Meleon needs to change and become resistant to incompetent webmasters and their bad Flash code.

IE and Opera work OK on all the sites that make my copy of K-Meleon go crazy. Can K-Meleon be made fault tolerant too, so that badly coded Flash won't make it freeze and crash anymore?

Possibly update of flash needed. I had no problem at SF and music site.

H:\K-MELEON1.5.1DE-DE\plugins\NPSWF32.dll // actually it is an 1.5.2.
Shockwave Flash 10.0 r12

This site, www.terrypratchett.co.uk/books, works but drives the cpu usage to 99%. I have Shockwave Flash 10.0 r12 on KM 1.5.2

I already have flash 10.0 r12 on KM 1.5.2, so updating flash is not an option for me.

Any other suggestions?
