Hello All,

Replying to my own post again,sorry.
Wanted to share for anyone else that may run into same problem after
updating (server) to CentOS 6.5 with the flash-plugin crashing on a
remote x display.

The fix for any version of flash-plugin crashing on CentOS 6.5 and
Firefox 24 was to install the HTML5 extension into Firefox.
I done this step just to see if Youtubes would in fact run in the
'native HTML5 format' as this is what Youtube is eventually suppose to
go to exclusively.

After installing the HTML5 extension into Firefox,this not only fixed
Youtubes/ "flashplayer has crashed" error,from crashing but all other
flash background features in all websites I have tried. Don't have a
clue what went on under the hood and don't care at this point. :)

For some reason I think the culprit is actually the new xulrunner that
is installed along side of Firefox 24,but not sure of that.

Take Care,
Barry

Barry et al,
I don't know if this is related but Flash did a number on my a couple of
months ago in a similar manner after updating, iirc, to Firefox 24 on
Fedora 19.

The cure in our case was to make sure that we had hardware acceleration
disabled. If necessary, we'd have to log in on the server, load
firefox/flash and make the change since flash would bomb almost
immediately on a client.

Thanks for the alternative work around.

Regards,
William
