From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.8) Gecko/20020204
BuildID:    2002020415

I am using the same flash plugin that used to work on mozilla 0.97.  Now
mozilla 0.98 crashes when it loads pages like that use 

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:

Actual Results:  The page starts to load in the browser window, which then
freezes.  All mozilla windows likewise freeze... they no longer display what they 
should but start to show "reflections" of other windows that are moved
over them.  Mozilla needs to be killed and restarted.

Expected Results:  The page should load and show the flash using the plugin. 
The browser should not crash.

flash plugin v 5,0,47,0

Linux distribution: RedHat 7.1

could u pls use a recent ...very recent build and pls retry? there have been 
quite a few bugs on flash crashers recently..some got fixed..maybe. Or this 
might be even a dup...if you could provide a stack trace.

Judging by the description this isn't a crash but a hang/freeze.
Reporter: Are you using /dev/dsp while this happens?
(Playing sound.. xmms or other)
Suspecting duplicate of bug 58339.

Mozilla 0.9.9

Mozilla 0.9.9 crashes when going to (no window freeze). 
There is similar behavior with ShockWave rich

Looks serious to me.

Crashes occur only with flash plugin. Computer is silent while mozilla crashes 
but I do not have gnome-audio installed. 
I've send bziped talkback to

darked, thank you I got it, but it would be more useful if you send talkback 
incident info to the talkback services, and post ID here.
TB services will properly match the submitted data with symbols info for any TB 
enabled build of mozilla, and presents the stack trace in human readable format.

For some reason we don't get a stack trace for these crashes, but from looking
at the comments...this is definitely a problem with flash.  

Adding qawanted to see if we can get this reproduced internally.  If anyone is
able to reproduce this again, we should nominate it for nsbeta1.

Reporter, I assume you were using a remote X display and that's the reason u 
were crashing. Hence, marking this verif. If this is not the case, pls reopen if 
u see this on a recent build. Thx !
