Flash Quantum Crashing Constantly

I moved to Chrome (again) because Firefox is crashing as always. I decided to try Quantum because read it was so smooth and the UI was sooo minimal and attractive and modern, but then it started to crash my whole operating system. Even the task manager freezes and I can't end task for Firefox. So i have to sit here looking at the screen with anger until it starts being useful piece of software again.

I followed some "solutions", Refreshing Firefox (Firefox even crashed when attempting a refresh), disabling/enabling some "Prevent accessibility services from accessing your browser" option in the settings. Finally, disabling 'Hardware Acceleration'.

Still crashes.

It's sad because in the beginning Firefox was my choice browser. I was a huge fan of it. Then it started crashing and crashing and I moved to chrome. Then decide to try another version of FF. Then crashed. Then moved to Chrome. An endless loop.

And it's not the same computer. I've have many computers, different hardware specs, different Windows versions.
