To be fair to Mozilla, I don't think this problem is their fault, the fault should fall on Adobe. This issue only affects those who have updated to the latest Flash, with Vista or Windows 7, but not XP. If it's Mozilla's fault, it should affect all OS. I am using Windows XP SP3 with Adobe Flash 11.3.300.257 and have no problem whatsoever, the same for many other XP users. Adobe should be the one who is responsible to release a patch to fix this problem, not Mozilla.
