This really works reliably for you?  What version of nspluginwrapper
and firefox?

It CONSTANTLY crashes on my Ubuntu 7.10 system:

Once it crashes, the only solution is to completely restart firefox.
Most annoyingly, I can't get all my tabs back by the usual hack of
"killall firefox" and answering Yes to "restore session?" - I have to
cleanly shut down and restart firefox.  Then I can visit one or two
Flash sites before it fails again.
