Flash Player plugin in Mandriva causes Firefox to crash.

I installed the Adobe Flash Player plugin in Mandriva 2007. As soon as I installed it, if I visit any flash enabled site, Firefox (v2.0) immediately crashes. I have tried reinstalling Firefox, however it made no difference. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance!

Firefox crashes are much more likely to be related to javascript than flash. Try enabling/disabling javascript and see if it makes any difference.
