note that we have not shipped a 64bit browser, and we don't currently support mixing 64bit plugins w/ 32bit browsers or vice versa.

In theory our 32bit browser should fail to load your 64bit plugin, crashing w/ that pair probably requires nspluginwrapper which is a third party (buggy) plugin.

This crash was using the 64-bit plugin in the 64-bit browser as the report above states.  nspluginwrapper doesn't work.  Anyway, the crash report reference is http://crash-stats.mozilla.com/report/index/bp-fb804d3c-b315-4950-8cf2-a73392100418 in the hope it helps.

Hi,

The 64-bit alpha version of the Flash Player for Linux is fairly dated. We have a much more mature version in the works that we'll make available once its ready to be formally beta-tested. As a result, I wouldn't spend a lot of time filing bugs for the Alpha version given its age and that the new version has undergone many long hours of improvements.

It's a 64-bit build, which doesn't have a frame pointer, and we don't have symbols for that frame, so we can't walk past it.

Is there any idea when the referred-to beta might see the light of day?

I'm closing a lot of bugs which are filed as Adobe Flash bugs which are either irrelevant, not actionable, or not serious enough to track in the Mozilla bug tracker. For the most part, Flash bugs should be filed in Adobe bugbase, and we'll only track a few highly-critical issues in the Mozilla tracker.
