Flash V9 causing Firefox to crash


Hi,
I am using FireFox 2.0.0.13 with V9 libflashplayer.so.
But, when I open some flash file (.swf), it's causing the browser to crash.

I have a libc-2.3.2.so, libglib-2.0.so.0.200.1, ld-2.3.2.so, kernel 2.6.16.40 on my system.

If I use the browser with flash V7 and open the same file then it is not running the flash content but also not crashing the browser.

On another machine with libc-2.7.so, libglib-2.0.so.0.1400.2, ld-2.7.so, kernel 2.6.21 Flash V9 works fine.

What could be the problem with the first system?
Could it be because libflashplayer.so (V9) uses libc-2.7 and I am trying to run it on system with libc-2.3?

Regards,
Girish

Flash 9 is known to crash Firefox. You might try Adobe's Flash 10 beta or switch to Gnash.

Difficult to say, Ubuntu 8.04 uses 9.0.124,
PCLinuxOS2007 and others uses an older stable one,
9.0.48 . An rpm package, easy to try on Fedora :
http://rpm.pbone.net/index.php3?stat...s2007.i586.rpm
(Mandriva has 2 choices : 9.0.115 + 9.0.48 )

Regards
