Youtube is a good example.  The first video I view the site works fine.  After the second or third video the site crashes.

Since the flash-plugin hasn't changes, and this only started happening around Firefox - I'm assuming it something up with firefox or a configuration issue with firefox.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open up youtube and what a video
2.Click on a second video.  (sometimes third or fourth)

Actual Results:  
Firefox crashes and a bug report comes up.

Expected Results:  
Play videos, games, and other flash content without crashing.

I have a bug report. Not sure where to put it.

Also not sure how to report the severity.   Critical has "The software crashes".

we can't use that crash report, please send it to your distro's crash handling for processing.

Can you please do a few things to get this report going. first, update to Firefox 3.5.2, second, update your flash to the latest version available from the adobe site. Then, try to get a stacktrace for us.

Indeed something has happened in Firefox 3.5.x that means (latest, Adobe Flash crashes MUCH more often than it did.  Prior to 3.5.x I'd had a mostly stable experience, unless I tried to fullscreen Youtube flash videos, but that was solved by either disabling Hardware Acceleration in Flash or preloading to be sure nVidia's code was used).  But with 3.5.x flash is now very crash happy as originally described in this bug.

It _seems_ to only be flash _video_ that causes this problem.

It may well be that the problem is in some ways at Adobe's end.  Roll on Firefox having Chrome-like process separation for plugins, eh ?
