SecurityGarden and GHacks

Due to the severity of the vulnerabilities, it is still recommended to upgrade but either disable the Flash Plugin (as noted in the Security Garden posting) or edit the mms.cfg file to change protected mode to 0 as noted in the GHacks article.

There is a third alternative, remove the Flash Player entirely or disable it in Firefox, then install and use Google Chrome which has a pretty good Adobe Flash sandboxing mode already — at least until Adobe gets this issue corrected for Firefox users.

There is more information at the Adobe page about this: Inside Flash Player Protected Mode for Firefox – Adobe
