What plugins are crashing? What does the crash message say?
Shockwave Flash is plugin crashing.
When crashing message says it's "Warning: Unresponsive Plugin Shockwave Flash may be busy, of it may have stopped responding. You can stop the plugin now, or you can continue to see if the plugin will compete" and gives options of "continue" or "stop plugin"
I've tried few things before coming here to ask for help:
Checked and all Plugins are up to date
Going into Fire Fox button and setting Shockwave Flash to "Ask to Activate"
Disabled Hardware Acceleration in Fire Fox and Flash
