I've been using Flash 9 since October last year, and haven't had any
crashing Firefox with it.

The only thing that I have problems with it is when it's in the early stage,
it doesn't recognize my webcam when recording under flash, but the newest
update fixed it already.

When your using Flash 7 to play YouTube, your wasting too much bandwidth,
since your downloading a backward compatible version that is twice the size
of a Flash 9 version.

Flash 9 uses On2 VP6 codec, that can record a near DVD quality video in a
very minimal size.

The company On2 also open sourced their VP3 codec, which is now know as OGG
Theora, a superset and improved version of On2 VP3 codec.
