What version of Mint and what version of Flash? There was a change in the naming convention in the Ubuntu repos and flash is now adobe-flashplugin instead of flashplugin-nonfree. Also, make sure you have libflashsupport installed. I have had no crashes at all with flash on my system and I am running Elyssa 32 bit/

for the moment i use Felicia main 32bit with the last version of adobe-flashplugin and libflashsupport, but i still crash frequently with flash-videos :(
but thanks exploder for the tip with the renamed plugin. (only to tell with other distro it is the same problem)

I hope that this problem is solved one time, and adobe give a better Linux support.

Try turning off these security settings in Firefox.

I should have mentioned this earlier. If I leave these enabled flash runs pretty choppy.
