I close this bug because:
 1) uninstalling package "flashplugin-installer" and installing "browser-plugin-gnash" removes the flash plugin and replaces it with the FREE Gnash. Unfortunately, Gnash does not play most flash videos, but it never crashed.

 2) Other random crashes could be a hardware bug. I observed that my laptop crashed more often, when i'm at home. I travel a lot, and i have two power supplies of same manufacturer (DELL) but two different types with different power (65W and ??). They differ in size. One power supply is used at home, another one at hotel, work ...
Last Sunday I was not able to work longer than a few minutes (at home). Then i remebered, that once i had laptop, which suddenly won't boot one morning when connected to power supply. I removed its accumulator (and plugged in the power supply) - and it worked for years but only with accumulator without power supply or with power supply but without the accumulator! Whe turned off, i was able to charge the accumulator!
So i removed the accumulator from my laptop and was able to put movies together to a video dvd and to burn that dvd without any hassle.
Another theory: It could also related to to some usb-devices. Only onces such a crash happened when working without usb devices (using buildt-in trackpad), but i had crashes at boot when connecting a elder 3.5" 500MB usb-hdd ("FreeAgent") before booting.
