I've (finally) got the 64-bit Flash driver installed and working, but now I get an illegal instruction when I run a flash operation (video, game...) at a random point while it runs. I see this in the terminal:


(firefox-bin:2108): Gdk-WARNING **: XID collision, trouble ahead

and it just quits. :|

Check if you have libmoon installed and remove it.

I presume you still have FLASH-AID installed. If the above doesn't help, then run FLASH-AID again and install the 32bit version of flash. Restart Firefox and check if the problem persists and if you can pause and interact with an YouTube video. I usually recommend the 64bit version of flash, but if the 32bit doesn't crash and doesn't exhibit the interaction issue, then is better to stick with it.
