Currently Being ModeratedJun 21, 2010 3:27 PM (in response to rjthorsen)Update 10.6.4 included an out-of-date version of FlashPlayer. Try deleting it and installing the latest one from Adobe:
The latest version of Adobe FlashPlayer can be obtained from here:
(You can check here: http://www.adobe.com/products/flash/about/ to see which version you should install for your Mac and OS.
You should first uninstall any previous version of Flash Player, using the uninstaller from here (make sure you use the correct one!):
and also that you follow the instructions closely, such as closing ALL applications first before installing. You must also carry out a permission repair after installing anything from Adobe.20" 2.1GHz iSight iMac G5, 250GB HD, 1.5GB RAM, Mac OS X (10.5.8), iLife 9 but iMovie 6, QTPro 7.6.6, Safari 5
Currently Being ModeratedJun 21, 2010 3:36 PM (in response to Klaus1)I appreciate your response and advice, but if you look at the log sample I posted with my message you will see that I do have the latest version of the flash plug-in (excerpted below).
I haven't tried a permissions repair though.

Currently Being ModeratedJun 21, 2010 3:40 PM (in response to rjthorsen)Yes I saw that, so my question is:
Did you download that yourself or did it appear after your 10.6.4 update?20" 2.1GHz iSight iMac G5, 250GB HD, 1.5GB RAM, Mac OS X (10.5.8), iLife 9 but iMovie 6, QTPro 7.6.6, Safari 5

Currently Being ModeratedJul 22, 2010 2:15 PM (in response to rjthorsen)I used to have this problem as well. The only way I was able to resolve it was to downgrade to the older flash player plug-in. 10.1 r53 (latest as of this post) crashed randomly but fairly frequently.
*Downgrading back to Shockwave Flash 10.0 r45 appears to have completely fixed the majority of the crashes related to Flash.* This was the version that a clean install of 10.6.4 would have provided.
Adobe needs to get on this and get this fixed. While this did start when I upgraded to 10.6.4, Adobe needs to keep their software up to date. I'm with Steve on letting Flash go out to pasture.
If others have advice - please reply back to this post. I'm curious if there are more solutions to this issue.MacBook Pro 17" Core 2 Duo 2.33GHz, Mac OS X (10.6.4)
Currently Being ModeratedAug 26, 2010 5:32 PM (in response to rjthorsen)I just spent two nights trying to figure out what was going on with the same error of Flash PLayer (Safari Internet Plug-in_ quit unexpectedly. I tried removing, uninstalling, re-installing all sorts of different applications and plug-ins....It wasn't until I removed QuickTime from my Mac that I was able to make it all work again. I have Safari Version 5.0.1 and Adobe Flash Player Plug-in too. There are a lot of qlitches between those two, since I am running on Mac OS X 10.6.4...but once I uninstalled the QuickTime Player and plug-in, everything works PERFECTLY!!!!! ALAS!!!!Mac OS X (10.6.4)
Currently Being ModeratedAug 27, 2010 3:22 AM (in response to Sooz_of_NY)we find the Flash plug-in crashes often but not always when listening to internet radio (Bayern Drei) ...
and also that other applications (MS Word mostly) go real real slow sometimes until we Force Quit the plug-in (via Activity Monitor) ... Safari can hog a lot of resources, too, so sometimes we close that, too ...MBPro | MBAir | WiFi iPad | G4 | P'Bk G4 | TC | iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.4), laptops 10.5.8 | G4s 10.4.0/8.6/9.2 | iPhone3G iOS4 / iPhone3G+iPod-t 3.1.3
Currently Being ModeratedAug 27, 2010 4:25 AM (in response to rjthorsen)Its not realistic but sometimes I feel the only way Safari works right is without the plugins Apple does not include in its browser. But I will tell you that I have had better luck using the Adobe Flash uninstaller and then reinstalling the latest Flash. Its not perfect but then again when has Flash worked really well with Safari?MacBook Pro/ Mac Mini, Mac OS X (10.6.4)
Currently Being ModeratedAug 27, 2010 5:09 AM (in response to rjthorsen)I was having the same problems everybody else has been having and have been living without Flash for a few days. Today, I reinstalled Flash and it seems like all my problems have gone away. Unlike the one person earlier, I am running with Quicktime as well. Here are the versions I have installed:
Shockwave Flash 10.1 r82
QuickTime Plug-in 7.6.6
The other thing I did was I recently installed the 2010-005 security update. Not that that should change anything, but I noticed my QuickTime Plug-in in the Internet Plugins folder to have been modified yesterday, the day I installed the security update.
@John Scott1 What you are saying makes perfect sense... but it shows that Apple tests things out pretty well before shipment. Adobe, that's another matter...MacBook Pro 2.53Ghz Core 2 Duo, Mac OS X (10.6.1)

I've just uninstalled flash, did the security update and reinstalled flash and (for now) seems to work a charmiMac 2.16Ghz Intel Core Duo, Mac OS X (10.5.7)
