the adobe flash plugin has failed and none of the solutions listed in the help section works! I've tried all the solutions listed but none seems to work.

Why is Flash now so unstable in Firefox? The Flash has crashed indicator is now a familiar visitor (it generally goes when I refresh the page so it's not hugely fatal!) But . . . I am having to go back to IE to check the reliability with my own sites - which are heavily dependent on flash for animation and video. What can be done? My Firefox and Flash installations are kept up to date. Really disappointing.

I've had this too, and thought it had something to do with the 3.6.8 upgrade. However, I'm not so sure now, since the Flash-crash also happened in Google Chrome. This may be a Flash bug, or a combination of Flash update+ Firefox 3.6.8

I've run updates for both Firefox and the Flash plugin.

This helped me: disable real time scanning in your anti-virus program. Disable any antivirus add-ons in firefox. Sometimes Firefox still freezes for a shorter time, then it plays video normal again.
