See Adobe Flash plugin has crashed - Prevent it from happening again

Set the pref dom.ipc.plugins.timeoutSecs on the about:config page to a higher value like 30. That will make Firefox wait longer to make a decision that the plugin has crashed due to not responding.

To open the about:config page, type about:config in the location (address) bar and press the Enter key, just like you type the url of a website to open a website. If you see a warning then you can confirm that you want to access that page.

I have the same problem and I tried that, well my computer is slower so I set it to 40 and it still crashed. When the FireFox security update and subsequent Adobe Flash Player were updated it happened immediately . I even tried to go back and use the last version of Adobe and it still crashes. Every game in facebook crashes, even chat in yahoo. Come on guys, my crops have withered, and my fish are almost dead! lol...Please help!

Only difference is that I am running windows vista home premium and the problem with the adobe flash plug-in just started yesterday. I have gone to check to make sure that it is the current and most up to date version multiple times and it is. I have been sending the crash reports each time it happens as well.

I will try resetting the value to 30 as suggested above and hopefully that will resolve the problem. Otherwise I am going back to IE 8!

I did as was suggested and changed the time out to more than 30 seconds and so far I have not had the problem. However, I am also getting a link stating to update my firefox ~ but I am just closing the box since I did not start having this problem until I did the firefox update to begin with.

You might want to try 45 seconds for that preference, which what 3.6.6 changes it to.
