Google Chrome shockwave flash is crashing


Hello all,

A new behavior I have now is when I go to a page with flash, the flash plug-in crashes. I am running Chrome Version 22.0.1229.94 on Fedora 17. Anyone else experiencing this issue?

Downloaded Firefox to make this post.

I tried right clicking on a flash component to try to disable hardware acceleration but it dies too quickly. Is there a way to disable it before launching Google Chrome?

Looks like http://www.howtogeek.com/103292/how-...google-chrome/ was a good workaround. I have implemented this on my workstation and am working on propagating to others. I will still keep ticket open with Google. Thank You for the help!!!
