Firefox terminates if multiple instances of flash player running


If i have, say, youtube tab opened and if a click on some of the related videos (while it's still playing) firefox terminates. The same if I open youtube on one tab and myspace on another - firefox just shuts down.

I want to know why this happens, is it a bug and how can i fix it ?
Thank you in advance.

(I don't know much about flash, but..)

Here: Slack 13.0 (32bit), FireFox 3.6, flash "10,0,32,18"

I do not experience the problem you describe. I can play two or more flash videos at once.
Code:
ls -al /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 10278616 2009-07-17 21:10 /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so*
It might be good for you to post what version of slack, firefox, and flash you use.

Can you duplicate the problem in seamonkey?

Seamonkey doesn't detect the flash player...with firefox and opera it's working ...
I don't know why. Can this be in any way connected with my original problem ?
