Gentoo Linux 2008.0 x86 running www-client/mozilla-firefox-bin-3.0.1-r1 from portage.

Visiting this link causes Firefox to crash. Anyone else getting that?

What extensions are you running? Works fine for me. I have adblock plus, and noscript, flashblock, and a couple others, and it seems fine for me.

Just started up firefox in safe mode and it still crashed. So it's not plugin or theme related...

I might put up a bug report on the gentoo bug tracker, it'll go upstream from there...

Works for me using FF3 and vista. Does it make IE crash for you ?

I narrowed it down to the flash plugin.

I was using the v10 for linux plugin, and it was not playing nice with that page.

Still, firefox shouldn't be so prone to crashing from plugins. It should keep them seperate from itself so if they crash out, it stays running.

When I loaded the page in opera, using the same flash plugin, the flash didn't work (IIRC) but the browser itself stayed running. Take a note FF devs!

You know I am beginning to think that I am all by my self, as I have never had FF crash on me. Unlike IE used to.

XP pro SP3 running Ff 3.01 works with that link too.
looking like it must be specific to you - a virus/trojan maybe?
ie 7 (fully up to date) and the latest Opera work fine also.....
