We are seeing multiple reports of Firefox 14 crashing on Galaxy S2 devices. There are several reviews that mention Flash being related (go to a page with Flash, crashes the browser). These have only started to appear in the past week. Filing to keep on our radar if this turns out to be an issue (unknown if this affects 15).
We've drastically reworked Flash for Honeycomb support Snorp is this still useful?

For GS2s that have been upgraded to ICS they will get the reworked plugin support as you said, but Gingerbread ones will pretty much be running the same stuff as 14.
I guess it's bug 732059/bug 759109.

The assertion in comment 4 is based on the difference in rank for these two bugs between 15.0b6 (Flash disabled in Galaxy S II - bug 783754) and 15.0b7.
This has been less prominent on Google Play after Firefox 15. I'll be looking into this next week as well after 15.0.1 is launched.

This has died back down to normal levels in the past few weeks (normal = not worse than most other devices of equal popularity)
