Shockwave Flash player is intermittently crashing firefox. I tried disabling the flash player, and firefox stops crashing. This problem affects any webpage with videos, flash games, or flash ads.

Try to disable OOP for the Flash plugin by setting the pref dom.ipc.plugins.enabled.npswf32.dll (Flash) to false on the about:config page.

If you're still having issues with Firefox 3.6.4 and/or the Flash plugin, Firefox 3.6.6 has just been released to address this issue and increase the dom.ipc.plugins.timeoutSecs pref to 45 seconds if it has still the default value. Please see Update Firefox to the latest release if you need help updating.
