Terrible flash support!Hello! I really love Opera and I'd like to make it my default browser, but there seems to be a very annoying bug/issue that messes all the excitement. The flash support is pretty much terrible. Seems like opera can't handle multiple flash instances. When I open two flash sites at once, the players crashes in both after a while. That's really really disappointing issue.sad Please fix it! Because opera is really outstanding and stands far ahead its opponents!
OS - PinguyOS 11.04 64bit, Opera 11.61.1250
*) 1. No new Adobe Flash versions for Linux (only security fixes).
2. IE 10 on Metro won't support Plugins.
3. No Flash for mobile platforms (I believe having read that there will also be no new Adobe Flash versions for Android).
4. Flash sucks.

Sorry to disappoint you guys, but I think that these problems are all well known. I do also think they won't ever get fixed, as Flash is going to die anyway* and HTML5 support is getting better (in browsers and websites). But seriously, who needs Flash? Okay, I have it enabled, but only because I don't want to accept Google/Youtube cookies (which are necessary for HTML5 support on YT).

What are you talking about? Flash works no better or worse than in Firefox for me. Since Flash 10 the plugin isn't even half bad.

Unfortunately, Flash in Opera on Linux is nowhere near stable.
