Firefox is in conflict with Flash player. Flash keeps crashing and locking up Firefox. Also, may be effecting Outlook. Downloaded the current rev of Flash. Still crashing. Please advise.


Of late, when ever I attempt to listen to radio online, or view video, the viewer / Flash crashes, locks up Firefox, and seems to also have some sort of effect on MS Outlook.
