TBB 2.4.9-alpha-1 crashes when I try to watch a flash video

Description

Attempting to watch a Flash video on break.com causes the Tor Browser in TBB 2.4.9-alpha-1 to crash. I expected to see a warning saying the video can't be played because I don't have Flash installed/enabled. I can browse and click around on youtube.com and vimeo.com without any issues.

umm.. As you know, you can't use flash in TTB. https://www.torproject.org/torbutton/torbutton-faq.html.en#noflash

How about using stable TTB?

Still, it's not supposed to crash.

I wonder if it's a FF bug, or more likely, a Torbutton-interacting-with-Firefox bug.

Does this still happen with TBB-2.3.25-4? We simplified a lot of plugin disabling code, and switched from NoScript to Firefox's native click-to-play barriers.. Might improve the situation?

I have successfully watched flash videos with TBB.
