Either or both would be a good guess.

Uninstall and reinstall Firefox and then Adobe Flash Player 10. Use the most current FF download, as well as Flash. Do a system restore point between installations so if it is the Flash player that causes the problem you can easily revert.

Well, next I would suggest you try a clean installation of the video drivers.
  • Go to the ATI website and download the most current known good driver and save it to an easy to find location.
  • Now go into Windows Explorer and in the C: drive find the Program Files > ATI folder (inside will be Drivers > your driver version) and delete it (the whole folder). If Windows finds the old driver files it may reinstall them.
  • Go into Start > Control Panel > Remove a Program and uninstall all programs for the video card. For ATI, select “ATI Catalyst Install Manager” and click on “Change”, then “Uninstall All Components”. Do not restart the computer at this time.
  • Run DriverSweeper to uninstall all video remnants Guru3D - Driver Sweeper (Setup) download from Guru3D.com .
  • Now restart the computer.
  • When it reaches the desktop Windows will find new hardware and will install it's own WDDM1.1 driver. Let it. You will be asked to restart. Do it.
  • Once back on the desktop you can now install the ATI driver package for your card.

I did a Google search on "adobe flash crashes firefox" and got a lot of hits.

Noteably:
Flash Video Crashes Firefox All The Time
and
Firefox 3.6.4 with Crash Protection Now Available :: The Mozilla Blog

If these talk about the issue you are having then you may not have a video card or driver issue, but a Browser/Flash issue. See if you can isolate the cause of the problem from the suggestions in those posts (and any others).

It really depends on whether you are getting a Windows error or a Browser error.
