    Flash Crashes and Freezes in Firefox (64bit Win 7)


      Intel i5 2500

      8GB RAM

      Intel HD Graphics 2000 (Driver version


      Windows 7 64bit

      Firefox Version: tried on 10.0, 9.0 and 9.1.0 (No add-ons installed)

      Flash Player Version:


      Firefox always crashes after 2-3 seconds of youtube video, or any other flash-content page or even on this page, which detects your flash version http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/155/tn_15507.html


      I have no addons installed.


      This is a clean system instalation, that I created just for this matter, problem appeared in the beggining. Problem remains after updating system drivers (graphic drivers) to the latest. I have tried to turn off or on the hardware acceleration in Flash settings. It doesn't make any difference.


      When this happens, Firefox completely freezes, then I go to Windows Task Manager and kill plugin-container.dll in Processes tab. As soon as I kill the process, Firefox is live again, but not the flash content, obviously. Error message displays instead of Flash content (Adobe Flash crashed, etc etc). Error report is not being generated at this case (No Report Available).



      Google Chrome works fine, but I also need to use Firefox and view flash content in Firefox. It's part of my job.
