Firefox 2.0.0.3 Crashes on loading *.SWF files


Hello!
I recently downloaded Firefox's latest addition 2.0.0.3 on my RHL 9.0 machine. I just counter an error that when I tried to load a webpage saved on my local HDD that plays a Flash file e.g: movie.swf It suddenly crashes and close without any notification. The webpage works all right on M$ XP and flash player plugin is also installed in Firefox n I can see the movie playing for 2 sec. Firefox works well except this. Did anyone has an idea about it?
OS: RHL 9.0
Desktop: GNOME
Application: Firefox v2.0.0.3

Mustafa^Qasim,

You can check your installed plugins by opening Firefox and typing

aboutplugins (put a colon between about and plugins...no spaces)

in the URL field...then press enter.

All plugins installed should be listed...

Also...If you are running RH9 you might want to upgrade to a newer one like Fedora Core 6 as RH9 is no longer supported with patchs,security updates etc...

I saw the same thing when I installed FF 2.0 in Slackware 10.2. Flash 9 made browser completely unstable. The solution was to downgrade to FF 1.5, which isn't super-stable either, but it doesn't constantly crash - only sometimes.

Opera and Konqueror don't seem to have this problem.

the Firefox 2.0 browser installation on my Mandriva 2007 was unstable with Flash 9.0. I went back to Firefox 1.5.08 with the Flash 9.0 and the browser became more steady. Firefox or Flash problem ?

I am also running Firefox 2.0.0.3 with flash 9 on Mandriva 2007....runs perfect...just watched Global TV re-runs with no problems at all.....very smooth sound and video.

I also use it for some online crosswords and games....same thing....no problem.
