    After updating Shockwave to Shockwave Player 11 my Opera browser crashes when attempting to test my Shockwave installation on this page: http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/welcome/
    has anyone else noticed this? While the new version worked with Firefox, I reverted to the last version of Shockwave for now and Opera is not crashing anymore.

    Yes...same here.
    There is also a thread in the Opera Forums, as well as the BBR Forums, so it appears to be a widespread problem.

    I too have reverted back to v10, and all is well again.

    For what it's worth, v11 doesn't crash IE7 or Firefox (only Opera), so I'm not entirely sure where the problem lies yet.

    Thanks for the feedback. I guess I will be sticking with the older version of Shockwave until the problem is ironed out.
