you can give us some more info to diagnose the problem

-hardware specs (memory, processor, video card, etc)
-ubuntu version (32 or 64bit?)
-system temperature when it crashes

happened with older versions of ubuntu or flash?

Download Flashblock (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/433) .

I install by doing:


sudo apt-get install flashplugin-installer

I don't know if it installs something different. Also, do:

sudo apt-get remove gnash mozilla-plugin-gnash

For flash player: http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/
and select deb ubuntu 8.04+ .

By any chance do you have swfdec installed? Like gnash, it conflicts with Flash.
