That might be the reason but I guess that you first checked the 'enable hardware acceleration' option in Flash settings, right ?
This was so tempting that I installed the 32bit plugin in my firefox 64bit with nswrapper, enabled acceleration and a 1080p video on youtube went from using 100% of one core to just 10% !!!!
