    Question flash player causing firefox to crash

    i have recently installed the latest version of flashplugin-nonfree from the repositories on ubuntu 8.10, and now Firefox (latest version) crashes without warning- it just closes unexpectedly. is there a way to fix this?
    If at first you don't succeed; call it version 1.0

    Is it with every flash file you play or? I'd try reinstalling

    no flash files being played (i assume you mean interactively like a video). the site that i was on when firefox last crashed had a flash navigation menu, and i wasn't even at the computer when the browser crashed.

    I had the same problem on 8.04. After I removed libflashsupport the problem went away. Haven't had a problem with 8.10.

    After installed Intrepid, flashplugin-nonfree didn't work for anymore. I simply download flash 10 from www.adobe.com site and install it from console. By this way there's no error.

    which version of the flash player did you choose to download from the adobe site (deb, tar.gz etc)?

    Here is the flash player and it works perfectly.

    Select the tar.gz one from here (which is the one I used):

    I have another problem maybe you can help me, I already download the .deb package and install it, but firefox keep asking me the plug in, I open Youtube and keeps asking me for a download of the flash player.

    I think I have to install it with the fire fox extension browser but I can't find it...

    Go here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/browse/type:7

    And the second one down is adobe flash player.


    Have fun.
