flashplayer 9 sucks

The 9 in 'killall -9 firefox-bin' is for flashplayer 9

Ever since I upgraded to flashplayer 9, the lifespan of a single instance of firefox on my computer has dropped from weeks to hours.

If you can avoid upgrading for flashplayer 9, I recommend avoiding it. It is bad software.

Hah! So that's why Firefox on Ubuntu recently became unstable on me! I was blaming xgl. Lately I've had to lay the kill -9 hammer on Firefox a lot more than I used to.
