Why Does Shockwave Flash Keeps Crashing In Firefox?

I've been using adobe shockwave flash player with no problem for the last six years. Recently I brought a new computer, windows vista and downloaded the adobe reader and shockwave player.

Everytime I go to watch a video on the internet flash player would crash and a message would pop up saying, "Adobe Flash Player 11.5r502 Has Stopped Working. A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available."

I'm using the latest release shockwave 11.5.502.149 and my computer doesn't have any malware or viruses on it.

I would appreciate it greatly if someone could help me with this problem as it means I can't watch any videos at all and because the flash player shuts down everytime I go on or youtube, I'm force to disable the program just to stop the constant error messages from popping up.

Really would appreciate any help or advice on how to fix this problem.

I using firefox 19 if that helps.

Does anyone know what data execution prevention is? It keeps popping up after I close adobe.
