    This might be controversial, but I don't think FF handles Flash very well. It works on my machine, but often crashes at some point during the day. Flash seems to be a common factor in this.

    I tried looking at the 2008.1 Errata and tried those solutions. Still nothing, Firefox will crash after I click on the second video.

    I think this is worth logging as a bug. Ages since I tried that myself though.
