Im seeing this package is having issues but everyone needs to
understand a few things. Flash 10 is not released as final.
Everyone needs to remeber this is a beta release not official and
since it fixes a lot of bugs that was there in flash 9 so i took the
chance to backport it.

I am unable to test every flash site out there
Most of these can be caused by corrupt profiles extensions however i
am not saying its not flash causing it but most are likely to be
caused by either installing libflashsupport (as we already have known
that causes crashes or not having eitehr libflashsupport or PA (for
all we know its the sound that is causing crashes). We cant know since
firefox 3 doesnt output anything useful to terminal when ran from
terminal this is something that was introduced in ff3 and we cant
obtain anything useful on backtraces or apport reports or any type of
crash log/report since flash is not free and we cant make debugging
packages so you cant in turn see problems on flash only crashes.
Just visiting a site doesnt mean its flash taht caused crashes.

Im adding this here so i can refer people here to read it.
