Debian flash issue
I just installed Debian squeeze using all the default settings (GUI, etc) and at first I was not able to view any flash videos on the web.
I installed the 'flashplugin-nonfree' package and all videos can be viewed but my browser quits without any warnings anytime I do this.
Iceweasel does this everytime and the default Epiphany browser too, but not that often.
Can you please tell me if anyone had the same issue or how to fix this?

Might not hurt to do a
$ locate libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/flashplugin-nonfree/libflashplayer.so

Thank you all for the suggestions.
I'll try them tomorrow and reply back with any updates.

Hello. If you don't mind Google chrome, you may want to check this out: Debian Squeeze: Installing Google Chrome
Flash is up and running perfectly out of the box with Chrome on a standard Debian 6 w/GUI install.

elmi@debian:~$ iceweasel (firefox-bin:2122): Bonobo-WARNING **: Bonobo must be initialized before use
firefox-bin: Fatal IO error 11 (Resource temporarily unavailable) on X server :0.0. Segmentation fault
Might not hurt to do a
$ locate libflashplayer.so
also after running elijas suggestion. I don't have that issue either in Iceweasel or Iceape in AntiX .
And I tried using Chromium with the same results.
Thank you all for all the suggestions, I really don't know what's wrong with my system right now.

I just tried using Firefox and the application itself si not breaking or quiting but the flash plugin seems to crash:
'The Adobe Flash Plugin has crashed / Send crash report'
And in the terminal:
plugin-container: ../../src/xcb_io.c:183: process_responses: Assertion `!(req && current_request && !(((long) (req->sequence) - (long) (current_request)) <= 0))' failed.

I forget if I installed flashplugin-nonfree with apt-get or Synaptic, but it works fine on most web-sites and does not cause any problems with browsers.
Perhaps you are missing a dependency or two? Do you have all of these dependencies? (This is the list for 386. I do not know if there are differences with 64 bit.)
Depends: debconf | debconf-2.0, wget, gnupg, libatk1.0-0, libcairo2, libfontconfig1, libfreetype6, libgcc1, libglib2.0-0, libgtk2.0-0, libnspr4-0d, libnss3-1d, libpango1.0-0, libstdc++6, libx11-6, libxext6, libxt6, libcurl3-gnutls Suggests: iceweasel, konqueror-nsplugins, x-ttcidfont-conf, msttcorefonts, ttf-dejavu, ttf-xfree86-nonfree, flashplugin-nonfree-extrasound

konqueror plug-ins would only be useful if you are using KDE. I only installed depends, no suggests. Yours should work, unless you have done some tinkering with the system?
Perhaps remove and purge flash and see what happens. If there are no problems, re-install it.
