I may be coming late to the party on this topic, but it happened to me with my Xubuntu installation. When I updated Firefox, it started crashing on any page with flash.

It seems that those of us who have been using "16" have had firefox crashing with flashplayer.
I'm using firefox 2 and it crashes a lot. I was in eBay, opened another tab and it crashed (while I was typing in the address bar). This happened to me two times now, the first time was with hotmail... so I don't know if that solution will apply to me too, since I don't think those websites use flash. If you guys know what's going on here please help... for now I'm just going to add those lines to the script
