    FWIW, friend who'd encountered crasher (11.3 and 11.4 Flash in Windows 7) reports that the fix for him was disabling acceleration in Flash.

    Well, maybe more of a workaround, but given the increasingly limited utility of Flash, really more of a fix for him.

    Perhaps Adobe could push out a hotfix 11.4.1 w/ acceleration disabled by default? :)

    Have a second report of disabling acceleration being a workaround, also a Windows user.
