Browsing this web site with FireFox 0.8 and Mozilla 1.6 causes both browsers to
become unstable. Typically, after a dozen pages, the browser quits unexpectedly.
I've gdb'd FireFox and it shows the problems as being a segmentation fault, but
provides no stacktrace. The steps to reproduce work for me usually on FireFox
0.8, but this is not the only way to get it to crash (in particular it is
crashable with only one tab), and may not work well under Mozilla. The point at
wich GDB suspends the process is when the flash banner has just been drawn in grey.

Reproducible: Sometimes
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a new blank tab
2. Navigate to URL
3. Close tab
4. Open a new blank tab
5. Navigate to URL

Actual Results:  
Browser quits unexpectedly with SEGV.

Expected Results:  
Displayed the URL

can you try Firefox 0.9rc (or Mozilla 1.7rc3) and report Talkback ID if still
crashing ?

Talkback IDs TB84750Z and TB84751X (FireFox 0.9rc). Note that I cannot reproduce
the problem without the Flash plugin (my plugin identifies itself in
about:plugins as "Shockwave Flash 6.0 r69"), so this is definitely some sort of
Flash or interaction issue.
