Firefox crashes instantly on YouTube videos

I updated Flash Player yesterday to the latest version. Now, Firefox instantly crashes when I play a YouTube video. Videos on vimeo and other sites seem to work fine, but on YouTube it crashes (and the entire window is closed down) within a split second.

I have tried disabling flash player, still crashes. It also crashes in safe mode. Other browsers like Chrome works fine, so I assume the problem must be with Firefox. I've sent in a crash report but I'm also looking for answers to fix this here.
