Firefox crashing very often in Edgy ?

Are you referring to general instability or bug 14911 
(, the 
firefox+flash+ARGB crash, which rather reliably crashes firefox whenever 
flash is used?

Since, unfortunately, it seems that so many people use 
flashplugin-nonfree, perhaps the bug needs to be noted somewhere (maybe 
during installation?).
