I have latest firefox from Ubuntu repository. It was installed along
with Ubuntu. I install flash plugin by clicking on "Install missing
plugin" dialog in firefox. But I've also test download and install it
separately from adobe, result is the same.

You are so wrong! It's not true. I tell you why. I'm not reporting
Flash is crashing, I am reporting Firefox is crashing. And that is
HUGE difference. In Opera, Flash plugin is also crashing a lot. But
crash of plugin DO NOT bring down the whole browser! So this is
definetely Firefox bug and should be fixed. In opera, when flash
player crash, the video dissapear, but the whole browser keep running
without problems. The same behavior should be in the Firefox.
