The solution has been posted on more than once already.... uninstall
nspluginwrapper, the 32bit Flash plugin and manually install the 64bit
one available from Adobe. It is leaps and bounds more stable compared to
using the 32bit plugin. Honestly I dont quite understand why so many
people are adverse to taking this route as using nspluginwrapper w/
32bit Flash was originally meant as a workaround until a 64bit plugin

On another note, I dont understand why Ubuntu has not chosen to just
distribute the 64bit plugin in its beta form as is. It isnt complete,
still has bugs, but is better than nothing. If they were able to throw a
beta Firefox on us a while ago, I dont see what their issue is with

FYI, for those looking for it Id recommend using the second to last
release of the 64bit flash plugin and not the most recent release as it
is a little less stable that its predecessor:

npviewer.bin crashed with SIGSEGV
