Your new "Ponyo" ad breaks my browser.

Let me preface that this is not a complaint that Crunchyroll has ads at all. I don't mind that. I whitelisted Crunchyroll and can put up with the ads briefly interrupting my video. What I can't tolerate, however, is when an ad instantly crashes my browser.

I was watching the latest episode of So Ra No Wo To when a new type of ad came up, the kind that covers part of the video until you close it. The thing of it is, though, before I could close the ad, its appearance made Firefox 3.6 crash in about a second. You can understand that this is far from ideal.

So I want to whitelist Crunchyroll in adblock, but so long as you utilize ads that actually make your site unusable, I have no option but to block ads here. And that's a shame.

Crunchyroll, will you please pull the Ponyo ad until it no longer does this? Then I'll go back to having my moe war animes interrupted by AT&T and Orbit again.

I have Flash 10.1 Beta 3 on Google Chrome and I previously saw that very ad during video playback but the browser didn't crash nor did Flash. If you can tell us the following information, we can look into it further.

Has this happened multiple times?
What Operating System are you using?
What version of Flash do you have installed?
