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)
