The new Firefox update BLOWS

Just a warning, the newest update to FireFox has caused me a TON of problems with Flash.  Crash reports every 5 minutes or so.  Yes, I have the latest version of Flash, and no, it's not just me, several FaceBook gaming friends are complaining about it as well.  How do I revert back?

All on windows I'm guessing. I updated both Macs to the new Firefox and newest flash with zero issues.

Can't you just uninstall and install the older version?

Not just Windoze, it's doing it on my 'nix, and I know my friend doesn't touch Win ever. 

Where do I find the older version?  I've been running 3.6.4 since early evening when I got the update, and it's been awful ever since.

And you're sure it's the newest Flash just released in the last week or so? Check here for previous versions of Firefox: http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/all-older.html

Right after the first crash report, I checked, and was running the current version.  After the 5th or 6th crash, I uninstalled the Flash plug-in just in case, and reinstalled it.  So, I'm pretty sure I have the most recent version.  Everything was fine until around 7 or so this evening when FireFox updated, and since then, it's been crashing every few minutes.  I'll let you know if going back to the previous Firefox helps, thanks.

I was having the SAME problems, but my Firefox just updated again.... like 10 minutes ago. And it made me update flash again too. So far no problems... I'll keep you posted though as time passes.

I disabled every add on except the plugin one. So far, so good here on my end also. Opera looks pretty good, but I'm sure if it has their version of Adblock and WOT though. Thanks for the reply..

This is a help page, not question page. If we could uninstall and re-install another version then we would. be more useful in your answers!

I know what you mean! A lot of people are having problems with the flash ever since Firefox updated. I just installed Opera. I don't see Adblock or W.O.T. (Web Of Trust)on Opera though. I really like Firefox, especially because of their add-ons, but it's too much to deal with right now. I'll try Firefox in a few days or so to see if they fixed the problem.

FWIW - i just upgraded to the newest Firefox (3.6.6) on the lone-Windows computer in the house (that my little boy uses to play online Flash games).. Also installed the new Flash.. Zero issues to report so far, other than that Flash installed some Mcafee Antivirus program with out even asking.
