No, I'm using flashplayer (directly from macromedia) .. but I found my
problem. I tried to use the kde transparency and shadow window option
and had added the required option into my XF86Config:
Option "Composite" "Enable"
I had previously found a note that this causes firefox to crash when
it encounters a flash page, but forgot. Anyway, I commented this out
and now firefox is working fine again.
