I'm having the same problem, and I'm SO FRUSTRATED!!! I can't find anything on Mozilla's site to help fix this problem. I'm close to "downgrading" back to version 3.5 so I can have a working Flash player again. Hope someone out there can suggest a fix... ??

I've experienced the same problem and and noticed, that the new plugin container causes this problem. I don't know how to solve it, but this new plugin should be the reason.

I have the same problem with Adobe Flash plugin. I can't find the solution either. This happens when I am on Facebook, using Farmville and trying to go to the market o buy fences and also when trying to click on some other links such as the unwither ring on the main screen when the farm loads. Does anyone have any ideas?

If you're having issues with 3.6.4 and the Flash plugin, please take a look at Adobe Flash plugin has crashed - Prevent it from happening again and increase the timeout as indicated.
