Silverlight crashes in Chrome with the error "Silverlight Plug-In has crashed." and in Safari/Webkit nightly build with "Plugin Failure" but works fine with Firefox.

I've verified that both Chrome and Safari are up to date, as well as Silverlight itself.

I had read some other message board posts about this issue possibly being linked to Mac Pro or the video cards used, but no solution is ever provided.

Note, manually removing /Library/Internet Plug-Ins/Silverlight.pkg and reinstalling produces the same result. – lukiffer Dec 12 '12 at 22:58
What is your Mac model? A Mac Pro? In that case, can you provide the link to the message board you mention? – jaume Dec 13 '12 at 10:24
I can't for the life of me find the thread with that info, but yes, It's a Mac Pro 5,1 (2x ATI Radeon 5770s). – lukiffer Dec 13 '12 at 19:26
