I've tried reinstalled an older version and it didn't work.
I can play youtube in chrome but there isn't any sound.
I have the same problem, ever since the 6th of May my browser will freeze then after about 15 seconds the warning window shows up saying that flash has become unresponsive. Typically, when I start having problems with something like this, I do a search and immediately find a solution to the problem. What has happened to create an apparent recent incompatibility that is aggravating the "living daylights" out of loyal users, and yet it hasn't been resolved to date?

I can't recall downloading anything and I must have uninstalled and reinstalled the flash player at least 8 times. I love firefox, but if the browser refuses to work, I probably won't be using it for much longer.
