I'm the reporter. I noticed that this bug seems to occur mostly (or is
it even only?) when flash is handled through a blocker extension such as
flashblock or noscript. The crashes occur when the flash plugin is
loaded for the second (or third or fourth...) time in a browser session.
Without a blocker flash is not nearly as crash-happy.

As the web is much more palatable with flash blocked but the crashes
occur mostly when flash video is blocked one of the ways of managing
this problem is by disabling the blocking extention before accessing
video content. Just don't forget to re-enable it before browsing
elsewhere or you'll be hit in the face by all the evil flash bring to
