Adobe Flash plugin has crashed, your solution create problem
Now a days often Adobe flash crush. I followed the solution exactly as described on your web and downgraded the flash version. After that windows program compatibility assistant started appearing with warning that Yahoo messenger need flash.ocx which is not supported by Windows vista. By following suggested solution by windows I re-installed Macromedia flash but the problem remain same. However, the Adobe flash player crush problem remain there but rarely.
I had been using Yahoo messenger and it was first time I saw such message though I just did changes in Adobe flash by following exact procedure described on Firefox website from uninstall to downgrade flash version.
Conclusion: After downgrading Adobe flash player the crush problem reduced to very minimum. The Windows compatibility assistant kept appearing therefore, once again I updated the flash player to the latest version and re-installed Yahoo messenger. Now only face Adobe flash player crushing problem.
Please share your thoughts or any advice will be appreciated.

Hi kingbode, have you tried the usual steps? I'm sure you've seen much of it before, but just in case:
(1) Make sure all recorders/downloaders that interact with Flash media are as up-to-date as possible, or disable them.
(2) Disable hardware graphics acceleration in Firefox and in Flash
(A) In Firefox, un-check the box here and restart:
orange Firefox button (or Tools menu) > Options > Advanced > General > "Use hardware acceleration when available"
(B) In Flash, see this support article from Adobe: http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/video-playback-issues.html#main_Solve_video_playback_issues
(3) Disable protected mode (Windows Vista/7/8)
See this support article from Adobe under the heading "Last Resort": Adobe Forums: How do I troubleshoot Flash Player's protected mode for Firefox?
Hi kingbode, if you can't start Firefox normally to make the above changes, try starting up with a blank page. Once you've made the changes, then try to restore your session from the History menu if you want to try to get back to your last set of open windows and tabs.
To start up in a blank page, use the Start menu, search box, paste the following and press Enter:
I followed your link below
to disable the Protected Mode of flash player
in file mms.cfg located in:
Windows 32bit: C:\windows\system32\macromed\flash
Windows 64bit: C:\windows\syswow64\macromed\flash
then restarted firefox then activated shockwav flash ( make it always active )
now youtube works fine
Thanks dear for your help
