    Running winXP and Firefox browser. I have been getting many crashes caused by Adobe Flash. Got the latest update yesterday and it continues to cause problems.

    Anyone else have probs with Adobe Flash Media?

    There may be a couple of issues. Firefox now has something called "plug-in container" that has been causing issues since Firefox 3.6.6 and suppose to be sort of fixed in Firefox 3.6.8. The other issue may be how Flash Player is updated. They now have an uninstaller program which you may want to use and then do a clean clean install of the latest Flash Player non IE version instead of updating.

    Newest version of Flash player non-IE version.

    first link invited me to join something or other. I uninstalled from control panel and d/l the non-ie version of flash.

    I'll let you know how it goes.

    Thanks
