My update of Flash Player 10 crashed Seamonkey on flash pages, had to remove the link to 10 which runs on Firefox 3.03 just fine and hunt down an old version of FP 9.0.124 in tar form and cp the libflashplayer.so into Seamonkey plugins directory. Now I'm fine. Flash 9.0.124 is not easy to find this is where I got it.
