Steps to reproduce

  1. Download textbox.io from https://textbox.io/thank-you-for-downloading/
  2. Use the textbox.io readme file to load the editor on an intranet site such as http://localhost/
  3. Copy and paste the contents of a word document with images into the editor.
  4. Paste a second time when prompted (this is using an invisible flash object to capture the paste contents)

Flash will usually crash on the first paste (but may require a number of pastes). This appears to be a recent regression that has occurred after the sandboxing of intranet pages’ flash objects.
