    Hope this is the right place for this. I did a search but saw nothing the same. I have a

    iMac G5 Intel Core 2 Duo 2.16 GHz, right now running 10.4.11

    I loaded Leopard last month and all of a sudden when I tried to watch a video in U Tube, browser would crash. Didn't matter if it was Firefox, Safari or Netscape. Same happened when I tried to use Amazon or almost anything with videos. So, I re-installed Tiger. When I did that, it asked if I wanted a clean install or partition. Since I wanted to keep everything, I chose the latter. Well, I lost all my addresses and e mails from Entourage. Gone. And, I still have the same crashing issues. :(

    I'm not real savvy on the technical stuff.

    Thanks!

    I know someone who has the exact same problem.

    The only thing that changed was the new Quicktime update. Still looking for a fix.

    Yeah, I installed that a few times to no avail! Removed and installed. Hope the update will help.

    Repairing the permissions may help.
    Yes I know, a lame solution (the most often mentioned solution for everything, even for major problems where you're almost certain it doesn't help sh*t and most of the times it doesn't help sh*t! ;))
    BUT it actually worked for some people on a Dutch Mac forum who had the same problem as you have.

    Ok, it's definitely related to flash player. I un-installed it and I can use sites I couldn't use before without it crashing. But, obviously I can't us You Tube since it needs Flash to run videos. I re-installed Flash with same results....crashes every time I try to watch videos, use Amazon to purchase, anthing with flash app.
