[PC-BSD Testing] npviewer processes run amok

I noticed with Firefox (3.6.7) that many npviewer.bin processes are spawned and don't go away - each one sucking up between 33MB and 276MB !  I have 40 of these running right now. Just Google it and you'll find everyone is having this problem that apparently is caused by a buggy Flash player.  

This thread (http://forums.freebsd.org/showthread.php?t=15749) suggests using scripts and cron to periodically kill these processes.

Any advice?
