Description

I am running HTTPS Everywhere version 2014.1.3 and Chrome version 32.0.1700.107 m on a Windows Vista Home Premium machine.

Since the latest Adobe Flash patch (the emergency zero-day exploit released on 04FEB14), HTTPS-E has been intermittently causing Shockwave Flash to crash. It does not happen on all webpages; for example, YouTube itself does not seem to have the problem, but YouTube videos embedded in other sites do. Disabling HTTPS-E solves the crashing problem, but I would prefer to still be able to use it :).
