    Shockwave Flash player keeps crashing on my laptop.
    If I go on a page that requires it, it loads for a while. Then I get a popup in like chinese or japanese with SOME english saying it had to terminate some error.
    Anyways i press okay and it says at the top that the shockwave flash plusin has crashed.

    How do i fix this?

    One of my friends had this happen, we tried everything we possibly could

    Installing it Manually
    Uninstall+Reinstall
    Installing an Earlier Version
    Everything else.

    In the end he ended up switching to Firefox, and hasn't had this problem since. I'm still trying to find out what's causing these sorts of crashes myself, despite being a FF user.

    I'll post if I ever find what causes the issue.

    It's happening here too. If I go to justin.tv, make a popup window and try to resize that window, Flash crashes on me. I really cant stand Flash these days -_-'

    Worst part is, other alternative technologies are not yet ready for full-blown use, and Flash is what we're kinda stuck with.

    Goddamit Adobe, just open source it already, not that you ever will, but we could probably fix every problem that exists currently in it if you did.

    I've still been looking for a solution to the problem, and so far I am coming up empty-handed, no solution I've found works for it.
