I'm using the latest gutsy, 32 bit intel.
I had installed gnash already.

I used firefox to go to a web site with a flash movie, and clicked
where the movie would be shown.
The computer asked me if I'd like to install a plugin, and if I'd like
gnash or adobe flash.
I chose gnash and pressed next. Then, both firefox and that dialog
with the next button appeared to freeze up. Nothing happened for a
Eventually, I noticed on workspace 1, a modal dialog telling me the
changes have been applied, and asking me to close that window.
I close the window using the 'close' button, and back on workspace 3,
the "plugin finder service" window is working again.
I press "finish" on that window, and the firefox page re-renders, this
time with the flash content available.
The bug is that the modal dialog appeared on desktop 1, whereas
firefox was on workspace 3. So, I was waiting for the installation of
the plugin to finish, watching workspace 3. It didn't occur to me to
go and look on different workspaces to find the dialog to say "yes, I
confirm that the process can be finished".
Actually, I don't really understand the value of that dialog -- all it
wanted me to do was click "finished". The process would have been
smoother without that dialog at all. However, that would be another
"usability enhancement" bug rather than a more serious "It looks like
firefox has crashed, even though it hasn't" bug.
I think maybe this is what happened with bug 96929 (marked invalid).
