Problems with Flash 10.1 crashing

There are numerous reports on these forums of problems between Firefox and Flash with videos failing to play on certain websites but not others. I have found that by reverting to Firefox 3.6.3 these problems go away. This suggests that the problem is with the plugin-container.exe process which handles Flash at vsns 3.6.4 and above. Has anyone else had the same experience? Any Firefox developers care to comment?

I have not had problems with Flash or plugin-container in versions 3.6.4 and 3.6.6. You can disable plugin-container. After disabling, restart Firefox (because plugin-container, once loaded, is unfortunately left running until Firefox is closed) and see if your situation has been corrected. See the instructions to disable plugin-container here: Also see
