Absolutely.

Follow the instructions here to uninstall Flash.

Let me know how that goes. Also go ahead and run Firefox with all the add ons enabled. See what happens.

Yes, that's what I did before, the same uninstall page.  I uninstalled previously and reinstalled, but the problem remained.  Should I do it again anyway?

Yes, but leave it uninstalled this time to see if the problem returns.

The problem has not reoccurred while Flash was uninstalled.  Should I try reinstalling?  Thanks....

That is the next step. Try going to this page and getting it. http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/?promoid=BUIGP

Watch the address, and if it changes don't click the download button, but let me know.

The address stayed the same ( http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/?promoid=BUIGP ) -- should I download?

It is re-installed.  I guess I will just let you know how it goes, whether the black patch returns in the next day or so....

The problem has not reoccurred.  I'm hoping that was it, but will let you know if it comes back anytime soon.  Thanks a lot.
