The above is the latest version of Adobe Flash just issued in the last 2 days. It crashes in Firefox and already large number of complaints posted.
Advised to uninstall and then install achieve version 10.3. This I have done however this limits access to certain parts of popular Web Sites.
Anyone know when correction to be issued.
Any advice welcome.
Thank you.

I am using the latest with Firfox 20.01 and have not experienced any crash. You might try to disable Hardware acceleration.

Right click on the video->Settings and uncheck Hardware acceleration to see if it helps

Try running a different version of Firefox - for example, the beta channel is now up to version 21:
Mozilla Firefox Web Browser

I don't find it unstable, and it does not seem to be crashing for me with the Latest Flash update

My sincere thanks to you both for prompt replies. I acted on the suggestion to uncheck Hardware acceleration and all appears to be working correctly.
Regards.
