I switched to the official Debian contrib package that directly downloads the, now again available, 64bit flashplayer plugin.
flashplugin-nonfree 1:2.8.2
youtube works. imdb doesn't, but at least it doesn't freeze the browser/system any more.

Subscribe to! Flash sucks and I bet it will cause problems soon again.

Do a
sudo dpkg-reconfigure flashplugin-nonfree
or a
sudo update-flashplugin-nonfree --install

We have temporarily closed the Labs program of Flash Player 10 for 64-bit Linux, as we are making significant architectural changes to the 64-bit Linux Flash Player and additional security enhancements. We are fully committed to bringing native 64-bit Flash Player for the
