Just the past 2-3 days, craftster.org started crashing my browser (Opera 11.01).

The crash only happens when I click a link (no one particular link, just navigating the site) and the new page starts to load.

This is a new issue, so I'm guessing it's a particular advertisement that's causing the problem, but I couldn't tell you the ads that are showing because the crash is fast and thorough -- I never see the page.

Thanks -- just trying to load this page crashed my browser three times in a row.

So far, it hasn't been often enough to be hugely annoying, but that was close.  Cheesy

Okay, I've narrowed down some things and I think the problem is flash/Adobe's latest Flash Player (which I did just download a few days ago).

Having figured out exactly which behaviors cause a crash (though they don't always cause a crash), I've been watching very carefully when doing either of those behaviors.  And I finally had a chance to read the error message (quite a feat because it all happens so quickly, lol):

Plugin Failed

It may say more, but that's all I have time to read.

I'm not sure there's anything to be done (if it's an Adobe problem), but here's the narrowing down: there are two times when the crash happens:

1) when I post a message -- the message gets posted, but I crash
2) when clicking "new" to navigate a thread from a list of threads (as opposed to clicking on the thread title or a page in the thread)

I don't know if there's a particular ad that's badly coded or if it's an Adobe problem...
