flashplugin 11.2 Linux disaster

The Adobe Flash plugin for Linux 11.2.202.297 is completely unstable. :(

Flash crashes in Firefox

Flash crashes in Chromium

The workaround I use is to use Google's "Pepper Flash":

google-chrome-dev /opt/google/chrome/PepperFlash/libpepflashplayer.so

Which only works in the Google branded Chromium "google-chrome" product. It isn't free software. This is a complete disaster, since Flash used to work fine in Linux. Now Flash 11.2 series crashes without fail and has become unusable.
