The same thing happens to me. I've had this problem for several YEARS, and it occurs on different machines (laptop and desktop) and through upgrades to flash and firefox and windows.

I've been complaining for years, and there's been nothing done, by either Mozilla or Adobe. I guess there aren't enough complaints to make it worth their while to figure out the problem. But it seriously has made me consider switching to a different browser. It literally happens every 5 minutes or so.

Some added toolbar and anti-virus add-ons are known to cause Firefox issues. Disable All of them.

I'm having a similar problem, but when Adobe Flash crashes, there is no report available -- I can't even send a crash report! (see image)

Update your Flash Player Version

See if there are updates for your graphics drivers

This can help;

Flash block {web link} Never be annoyed by a Flash animation again! Blocks Flash so it won't get in your way, but if you want to see it, just click on it
