Firefox 3 Randomly Closes when Using Flash

People have been having problems with flash in Linux for a while now, there seems to be major bugs with every release of it and Linux users usually end up suffering.

The past two or three days I have been experiencing a particularly annoying bug which causes Firefox 3 to randomly close when playing a flash video or game. The crash seems to happen as soon as the video or game has loaded and just before the video starts to play. This would happen with every other video. After spending ages searching through the net and going through Ubuntu forums I eventually came across a solution which seems to have worked. If you've been experiencing the same problem as me, what you need to do is open up your terminal and type in the following:

sudo apt-get remove libflashsupport

Hopefully that will work for you too.
