Windows 7: IE 9 crashes when opening tabs while playing a flash video

IE 9 crashes when opening tabs while playing a flash video

When I play a flash video (youtube, streams by twitch.tv etc) and open new tabs, chance is that IE9 crashes saying "A Problem with this webpage has caused internet explorer to close and reopen the tab". This doesn't happen everytime, but more often then not.

I think I was able to narrow down the issue:
-I belive this only happens when the new tab(s) contains an embedded FLV.
-Disabling the "Shockwave Flash Object"-Addon made this error doesn't occur it seems, but also (and/or due to) disables said embedded flv.

I'm on win 7 64 bit and using IE9 32 bit. Latest adobe flash player is installed. A fresh, clean install of win 7 didn't solved the problem.

Registerme,

Get all IE updates from windows update, and make sure you have the lastest flash from adobe. Also, are all your drivers installed for your computer? http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/w...-your-hardware

I alway keep my software and drivers up to date. As stated I also have the latest adobe flash version installed.
I also reinstalled windows fresh and clean some while ago (after the the error started to occur tho). I guess it has something to do with a buggy version of a new Shockwave Flash Object-version a bit ago. I dunno if there is a work around for my problem or if it's a known topic, to say the least - it's frustrating.

Registerme,

Did you look on adobe's website for a previous flash version (If they have it)? If you find one and install it, let us know if that solved your problems.

Also, this problem was for sure caused by adobe, not something else? What I'm getting at is - this is more of a recent development to rule out an operating system problem or such? You might try resetting IE anyway, just to see if it helps (it couldn't hurt, right?).

I have this problem for a few month now, I doubt reverting back to such an old version will be a good solution on the long run. Tho, disabling the addon seemed to solve it, but it only occurs on IE 9, not on Firefox. so there must be a problem with one of them or some sort of incompatibility between the too. I can clearly rule out anything else, since I reinstalled windows and the like and it didn't solve the problem.

What I'm curious about is if I can replace the flash object addon with anything similar that let's me see embedded files.

registerme,

I am not sure, most websites link you to use Adobe. Microsoft has Silverlight but rarely do people use it, and apple has quicktime, but again it is more rare. Adobe is the main standard. But it is strange that it should only be messing up your system and not mine, something tells me it isn't flash player's fault; maybe it is the browser's. I would try resetting IE as I metioned earlier, and perhaps you could list the other addons you have running with adobe in IE?

You aren't running any betas are you?

If you install the latest version of Adobe Flash Player to a 64-bit machine it installs the 32-bit version to IE9 x86 and the 64-bit version to IE9 x64.

Try this version of Flash Player and use IE9 64-bit instead of IE9 32-bit.

I tried 64 IE9 aswell and there was a huge problem that made me go back to 32 bit, but to be honest I can't remember why exactly, was a while back. I might give it a shot to see what it was.
