Firefox keeps crashing


I have firefox 2.0.0.13 and it keeps crashing on me. The distribution that I use is Mandriva (the newest). It happens especially when using YouTube.com changing videos. I tried to start firefox from the terminal and this is what I got back:

Flash Player: Warning: environment variable G_FILENAME_ENCODING is set and is not UTF-8
Flash Player: Warning: environment variable G_FILENAME_ENCODING is set and is not UTF-8
Flash Player: Warning: environment variable G_FILENAME_ENCODING is set and is not UTF-8
Flash Player: Warning: environment variable G_FILENAME_ENCODING is set and is not UTF-8
Flash Player: Warning: environment variable G_FILENAME_ENCODING is set and is not UTF-8
/usr/lib/firefox-2.0.0.13/run-mozilla.sh: line 131: 12216 Segmentation fault /usr/bin/soundwrapper "$prog" ${1+"$@"}

I have no idea what this means or how to fix it so I was hoping that one of you might be able to help

Tanks

Could be related to the Flash videos at YouTube; does it do it if you disable the plugin?

Perhaps. How do I do that?
