I never cared for aurora. I think development has almost stopped on it.
You should check out the latest rekonq git version.

As it turns out both Arora and Rekonq crashes on every site that uses
flash... and that is quite a few.

There are hints on internet that this is related to the latest
flashplugin, 10 something. Anyone have an idea on how to back to an
earlier version of Flash in Lucid?

I haven't found one.... and flash is totally broken on Firefox for 10.4
AMD64 (and possibly 32 bit also)

Its a bug in the latest 4.4.4 bundle of qtwebkit, apparently gtk_init() is not
called before loading flash, this will be fixed in qtwebkit2

Not, this effects konqueror as well if you use the webkit viewer.

There's a patch on the rekonq mailing list that works around it and I imagine
that will make its way into rekonq trunk fairly rapidly.
