Almost everyday i keep getting this message from Chromium:
/usr/lib/flashplugin-installer/libflashplayer.so crashed. It's not real problem, because my browser keeps working, but it's really annoying seeing that message everyday. Everything on my Chromium 7.0.517.44 Ubuntu 10.04 is updated, and I don't know why this is happening. Really i don't care WHY it's happening i just want to fix it! Can somebody tell me how?

You can check the logs to see the real problem, but flash has always had problems in Linux. Does flash crash in Firefox, too? If it doesn't, it's probably a conflict within Chromium so make sure you upgrade to the latest version.

See attached image. (starting from top to bottom circles).

In the last circle, note the location of the plugin.
if you want to disable it, press disable.

thats the flash plugin btw.

Am I missing something... I don't see why would I disable flash (altrough that would definetly solve the problem, but would my browser than show flash content)?

correction: your going to be disabling the inbuilt chromium flash and enabling the external one.

chromium does not have an internal flash player like windows CHROME, its uses the flash plugin as default.

Disabling it, disables flash at all.

still not solved, flash crashing like hell in chromium =(
seems normal in firefox

delete your chrome folder in your home directory
/home/username/.local/chrome
i had the same issue, worked fine after that for me
