    "Error #2044: Unhandled IOErrorEvent:. text=Error #2032: Stream Error.
    at com.FIM.media.types::Mp3AudioContainer/spoofRealPlayer()"

    I get errors like this 7/10 times I go onto eBay when using Safari. Not as often when I'm on other websites. I switched back over to FireFox thinking it would help, and it did for a week. But just 15 minutes ago I got my first error in FireFox (above). All of this started happening after I installed the CS4 Master Collection. I thought the problem was Flash, but everything has been updated and reinstalled more times than I could count. If any of you are familiar with MainMenu, I use that to maintain my computer and I have used everything within that little app but still no luck.

    Is anyone else experiencing this? Any thoughts on what I could do to fix it (besides uninstall CS4) It's truly annoying and half of the time it locks up the browser and I have to force quit it.

    Me too!

    I don't have an answer, but would like to say that I'm having the same problem... so you are not alone!
    Mine all seem to be Adobe Flash Player errors. But I have updated my Flash Player. Am working on Mac OS X 10.5.6.
    I have been getting random errors in safari for a few months - very annoying. These are just three that I have received this morning:

    ReferenceError #1056: Variable bottomItem is not defined

    Error: Error#1502: A script has executed for longer than the default timeout..

    Error #2044: Unhandled ioError: text=Error #2032: Stream Error. ....

    In all cases there are two selection buttons "Dismiss All" and "Continue". It doesn't seem to matter which on I select... the error message goes away and the page seems to load ok in most cases.

    But... What's going on? ... I ask you.

    Developer Version

    Do you have the developer version of flash installed?

    First you need to uninstall the flash player (google uninstall flash)

    Then just go to the flash website and download the end user version.

    Hope that's of some help!

    I just uninstalled the Flash Plugin and reinstalled the regular plugin from their website. Since this problem only happens intermittently, I have to wait and see if that was the problem. But it seems to makes sense.

    I have no idea if I had the developer version of flash (I did download a trial version of Flash a few months ago... would that have changed things with my plugin?).

    I'll let you know... thanks for the fast reply!
