    Every since this afternoon flash has been acting up. I am using Google Chrome with Flash Player 11. Last I remember it was in version 10 so not sure if it just updated in the past couple days since chrome automatically updates it.

    Anyways after about 10-15 minutes of watching something, the flash area will turn white and show a circle with an exclamation mark in the middle. It also makes a buzzer sound when it crashes. As soon as I refresh the window, it works again for another 10-15 minutes. Like I said it has been happening for the past 4-5 hours, since this afternoon.

    I have cleared all browsing data and restarted. Googled a bit but seems nobody has found a solution for it.

    Does anybody know what the problem is?

    1) Try resetting the pram.
    2) Reinstalling the flash player again.
    3) Worst comes worst you`ll have to reinstall the osx.

    Thanks man. Well I just used Safari for about 15 minutes and hasn't crashed yet.

    Flash is built in with chrome so what I'm going to do is probably just reinstall chrome and see if that fixes it. Definitely has nothing to do with the operating system.

    I'll let you guys know
