Ok, I figured it out and fixed it! If you run your software & updates 
tool, you should see an available online update. Go ahead and install 
it, and it should fix the crashes with Flash player now. The icon still 
looks a little weird in gmail, but it does work and bring up the popup 
when you click the attach button.
