Flash is messed up in Epiphany and Firefox as well. I'm wondering-if I replace flash will it solve the problem--also which flash to use. It would be useful if a workaround was published.

Adding a task for Epiphany, as on my box (bug 617030) the crash doesn't occur in Firefox.

Got the same bug on my machine with epiphany (but not firefox). This showed up only recently, but it might be it's because I usually don't use flash websites. See crash log attached.

Using epiphany 2.30.2 on ubuntu maverick

still not fixed, is it?
Even if it's some kind of annoying flash-issue, there should be at least some kind of more specific error message and epiphany should not crash at all.

I think you should try installing the new 64-bit Flash 11, that will probably solve the issue. Anyway, upstream doesn't support 2.30 now (we're at 3.2), so they're probably not going to fix it now...
