John, can you please attach the os x crash log (the log should be at the bottom of the file "mozilla-bin.crash.log" if you havent had any more crashes)? Use the link "Create a New Attachment" in this bug report. Can you also check what version of Flash you're using (Help --> About Plugins)?
No file named mozilla-bin.crash.log was generated on my computer. Flash version: File name: Shockwave Flash NP-PPC Shockwave Flash 6.0 r47
Your crash is probably related to the old Flash plug-in you're using (bug 200511). Could you please upgrade to the latest version at http://www.macromedia.com/shockwave/download/download.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlashwill and report back? BTW, when reporting bugs it's always good to have the OS x crashreporter enabled. Here's the how-to: 1) Open your hard drive and find "Applications | Utilities | Console". 2) Open Console. 3) Do "Console | Preferences". 4) Open the "Crashes" tab. 5) Click on the two checkboxes: o "Log crash information in ~/Library/Logs/" o "Automatically display crash logs"
Yes, upgrading Flash worked. Am I the only one who finds it disturbing that plug-ins can bring down the browser? There's been some interesting work on this problem; what are the odds it will show up in Mozilla at some point?

See bug 156493 - not sure if anyone is working with that bug, though. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 200511 ***
