User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8.1.12) Gecko/20080207 Ubuntu/7.10 (gutsy) Firefox/2.0.0.12
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8.1.12) Gecko/20080207 Ubuntu/7.10 (gutsy) Firefox/2.0.0.12

When using the npr flash player (play any program from npr.org) and I open another window the browser stalls.  It must be killed and restarted.  For example.  I start to play "All Things Considered" then go to Lenovo to look into buying a new laptop (we'll see).  I am curious about what WSXGAS+ TFT means so I click on the more info link.  It tries to open a new window with information and browser crashes. This also happens when I try to open a pdf document from journals I look at at work. I know - maybe I shouldn't be using the bandwidth at work... 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Read above
2.
3.
Actual Results:  
The browser crashes.

Expected Results:  
It should just open a new window, or the pdf document.

I am running Ubuntu 7.10 on a ThinkPad T42. Nothing special/weird has been done to the configuration.

Josh, are you still hitting these problems?  What versions of Firefox and Flash are you using now?
