Flash crash in Chrome

Our online newspapers have experienced chrome crashes when a user open multiple tabs. The crash is caused by Flash and it is a quite common problem

We have used -webkit-transform:translateZ(0); to turn on hardware acceleration in Webkit browsers, but hardware acceleration seams to work bad with Flash. Probably because Flash also use hardware acceleration and because Chrome opens a new process for each tab. Flash doesn’t run in multiple processes.

Removing the CSS-property fixes the problem.
