Created attachment 255917 [details] Full strack trace of Firefox core dump most probably from libflashplayer.so A brief examination seems to suggest that libflashplayer.so may have some conflict with Linux posix pthreads (glibc-2.5 version). One could argue that after one has played a YouTube flash video the libflashplayer should be doing *nothing* until an explicit request is made to play another video.
What version of flash was this?

flash v7 for linux is known to crash. does Flash 9.0 r31 solve your crash?
The previous comments about Flash 7 were an error on my part. Just to be clear about the version. I believe it is the most recent release from Adobe. The Readme.txt file is dated 4 Jan 2007 and contains: Flash Player 9 for Linux Version 22.214.171.124 libflashplayer.so is 7,040,080 bytes in size, dated 15-Dec-2006 @ 16:51 and running a "sum libflashplayer.so" says: 22534 6876 This is running under Gentoo Linux 2.6.18-r6 with all of the libraries at the most recent release levels. The glibc (and pthread) is at 2.5 with Posix threads. The GDK/GTK/GLIBs are at the most recent verions from gnome.org. The problem is difficult to reproduce because flash was *not* supposed to be running at the time of the segmentation fault (all previous videos from YouTube had completed running hours prior to the SegFault, though the tabs were still open). The stack trace attached to the bug may be helpful. If there is a specific location (with a symbol) in the libflashplayer.so that can be used to verify the Flash version # in the core dump, I'll be happy to do that. (I've looked in the .so file for a string "version #" and there doesn't appear to be one present.) I believe I have encountered a similar fault once before with the same version of flash, using almost the same system libraries, but using Firefox 2.0 instead of Version 3.0a2.
you can check the version of flash with about:plugins (also in the Help menu).
Looking at about:plugins confirms that libflashplayer.so is indeed "Shockwave Flash 9.0 r31".
We can't reproduce this crash using the current Flash Player release (9r124) or the recent Flash Player 10 betas. If it is reproducible, could someone post repro steps including URL, distro/version, browser/version and versions of relevant libraries?
