Some time ago I downloaded the flash9 plugin for firefox for linux from
the official site (don't ask me which was that :) and swapped the .so
file installed by linux-flashplugin-7.0r68 with the one found in the
archive I downloaded. Than I ran linux-firefox and visited
www.discovery.com. After 5-6 clicks the whole firefox crashed with
signal 10 and I reverted back to version 7 of the plugin. Btw I am
running FreeBSD 6.1/amd64.
