I am having problems with Safari when I go to watch StatTracker which is used for fantasy football, the program uses Flash so I downloaded Flash player 9. But after having Stat Tracker open for about 30 seconds it crashes. I verified my persimissions and then repaired them thinking that would solve my problem. It didn't.

So I was just wondering what should I do? Should I go and uninstall Flash Player 9? If I have to do that where is it located I can't find it in my application folder.

Any help would be nice.

Just tried that and it didn't work. This is what I get when I hit report to Apple.

Exception: EXC_BAD_ACCESS (0x0001)

Adobe Flash was causing Safari to crash on my computer (happened whenever I lost an internet connection). I reinstalled it and everything was fine.

First uninstall Flash using Adobe's uninstaller. The link for the Intel version is located on this page under Part 2: Reinstall. Then make sure you are downloading and installing the correct intel compatible version of Flash which is available here. After it's installed, repair permissions. Adobe's PPC installer always fouls up permissions and I don't know if that's been corrected for Intel-based systems, but it's still a good just in case procedure with Adobe's stuff.

Delete the flash plugin from
/Library/Internet Plug-Ins/Flash Player.plugin
then go here
to enable html5 on youtube.

The browser should stop crashing if you get rid of the crashy adobe plugin.
Who needs it anyway? HTML5 is more solid.
