Hi Michael

I too was having problems with Flash crashing after upgrading my
Ubuntu installation to 10.04 (64bit Lucid).  Firefox would crash
entirely, but Chrome would only crash the particular window with an
error.  It would stay on the URL however, and would allow a reload.

To resolve the issue, I followed the instructions at the URL below
which essentially ran a shell script that removed competing binaries
and allowed one installation to shine through...

and the direct link to the script...

Take a look, perhaps give it a shot.  Maybe it will solve your problem.
