After downloading Macromedia Flash (the last version) from the Macromedia's
official webpage I installed it both for Mozilla and IE 6 (with all the service
packs). I had no trouble with IE, but every time my browser tried to visualise a
Flash content the whole browser stopped responding (I use tabbed browsing).

I tried reinstalling and it didn't work; until I installed it in English (i had
installed it in Spanish for it is my native language).

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open mozilla (if not opened) - It doesn't matter how many opened tabs you
already have.
2.Install Macromedia Flash Player 7 (in Spanish)
3. Open any webpage with Flash content

Actual Results:  
I had to Ctr-Alt-Del my PC so as to close Mozilla.

Expected Results:  
Shown Flash correctly. Which it did after I installed the english version
