Flash in Firefox


I'm having trouble with the libflash-mozplugin from the debian sid repository. After I installed it, I got very frequent crashes in Iceweasel. I couldn't tell exactly what was causing the crashes because I couldn't look at the content of the page. I think it is any page that had flash, but it may have been javascript of AJAX related too.

Anyway, are there any workarounds for this or is anyone else having similar problems? I'm sure it is libflash-mozplugin because after purging that I have no more problems with the pages that gave me crashes before.

From http://forums.debian.net/viewtopic.p...r=asc&start=30

"Looks like it's the Adobe non-free player that causes problems. I've been switching between that and the Mozilla player and the latter doesn't seem to crash. So I guess I have to choose between an updated one that crashes or a slightly older one that's stable but does sometimes not work... "

and

"Lesson learnt: Get the binary package from adobe.com "

'flashplugin-nonfree'

Using the little yellow bar at the top of the page in iceweasel seemed to do it for me.
