    Dreamland.
    Rebooted my computer this afternoon and saw another flash player update, installed it as usually, but now whenever I go onto Youtube, Firefox crashes. It doesn't do it on another other browser either.

    Help?

    EDIT: It gives me a "Plugin Container for Firefox has stopped working" And then the whole browser crashes.

    Remove flash player for Firefox and reinstall it?

    It could have something to do with the fact that they're revamping the entire site design.

    did not crash on me just now. FF8, flash 11. i'd recommend completely uninstalling flash and reinstalling like kevan said. plugin container is where firefox sandboxes the plugins. if it's youtube, then flash is likely the culprit.

    that happened to me with version 7, but not 8.

    chrome is a viable alternative, especially since it keeps flash up to date on its own.

    Uninstall flash, reinstall it. If it still happens, update your graphics drivers.

    IF it still happens after that, disable hardware acceleration (but this might make flash things slower). Right-click a flash, go to the settings, and the option is in the first tab. Re-enable it after either flash or your graphics drivers get an update.
