Flash installed in Mozilla Firefox in a easy way!

https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Multimedia/Flash#32_bit_wrapped_version has the working method to install Flash.
Unfortunately, crash here happened in the binary-only flash player for which we don't have any source code, so unfortunately we cannot help you with it.
Closing as CANTFIX (because that's our situation)
