Is there an alternative for Adobe Flash for Mac & Firefox

Running Mac OS 10.6.8 Snow Leopard with Firefox 13.0. Was notified that I needed to install Adobe Flash/Shockwave to see video content.

Have loaded and updated to the newest version as of last week but Firefox has become buggy, freezing up but my pointer will still move. I continually get requests from Flashplayer to store data on my machine. Continually get error messages that I have to click DISMISS and the it works normally.

Just a regular PIA. I have uninstalled Flashplayer and the problems disappear but I cannot access a lot of content, especially videos.

IS there any alternative for Mac?

Why are you not using the latest version of Firefox? The latest is 16.0.2. Maybe an older version of Flash would work better for you? You can choose your Flash version to install from here:
