I’ve been noticing that Adobe Flash Player crashes very regularly on YouTube in Firefox 4. It literally crashes on pretty much every video and comes up with the message “Adobe Flash Player has crashed, click here to send an error report”, when you send an error report it gives you the option to reload the page, when you reload the page it usually works but the same crash cycle repeats when clicking on another video.
I’ve tried uninstalling and reinstalling but it doesn’t seem to have done anything, it just seems to be a problem with Firefox 4 as I also have Google Chrome installed and flash player doesn’t seem to have any problems.
That might not be necessary. The updates that openSUSE downloaded today included an update to the package flash-player and I assume flash-plugins and other dependencies. Since then YouTube video’s seem to be much better now. (At least from what I’ve tested so far anyway). Well it doesn’t crash on every video now.
Hopefully this is the fix I’ve been waiting for, along with a load of other people!
