    All of the sudden my web browser (doesn't matter which one i use, I've tried firefox 3.5.3, firefox 3.0.9 and latest safari) crashes every time i visit youtube. As soon as I enter the site, the beach ball shows up and I have to force quit the browser. I have the latest version of flash. I'm not really sure what could be causing this and was wondering if anybody has had a similar problem and knows a fix. Thanks

    Just had this problem start today. I haven't changed anything on my system and I reinstalled Flash still nothing. Firefox, Safari, all crash.

    The same happens on IGN which uses Flash.

    Fix for crashing Flash

    Go here http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/142/tn_14266.html and download an older version of the Flash installer. Make sure you remove the new flash player.

    You may be "at risk" per the vulnerabilities discussed elsewhere...but at least Flash works now.
