    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 adobe.com 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.
