    I surf with Firefox on my Dell laptop with Windoze 7. My Flash plug-in crashes all the time. All the time. It's been happening for many weeks.

    Anybody else having this?

    I have the latest version (11,5,502,146) installed on both, along with the latest Firefox.

    I got away from Firefox and moved to Google chrome because mine was crashing every time I used it!

    Good luck!

    Hm, maybe it's time for Chrome. I've liked Firefox pretty well for a lot of years.

    Memory leak? That sounds like stuff oozing out of my ears....

    I run XP with firefox, no probs... I run Pale Moon on my WIN7 machine, no probs there either...

    Pale Moon is just an "Optimized for Windows" build of Firefox... You may want to try that...

    I find that every now and then it'll crash repeatedly for a day, but it's normally sorted itself out by the next day. To quote Faust: "it's a bit of a pain".

    Perhaps you should clear Flash and reload it.

    Mine crashes using Chrome and OSX 10.8. Annoying.

    Flash has a history of being pretty rubbish. It's good that it's finally being phased out in favour of html5.

    Try updating or reinstalling it.

    Yep, Windows whatever and Google Chrome and occasionally Fire Fox on an HP Pavilion Laptop from 2005. Do I ever care or do anything about it? No. It hasn't made much of a difference on my computer system. And believe me, I have treated this computer REALLY poorly, and it still runs better than most new ones everyone else has, even with Adobe Flash down.

    Chrome has its own plugin for Flash, and it seems to work better for me than other browsers. Nonetheless, Flash is bad news and I try to avoid it.

    I run IE9 on a Win7 system and IE10 on a Win8 system. Never had a problem with either.
