Hi Gavin , it seems this was an issue caused when using the Flashblock extension.
I uninstalled the extension , but it still caused problems (the directory still
existed).
So i went in and physically deleted the extension directory under my profile and
then i could reload the page.

So this issue is reproducable only with to the Flashblock extension installed.

If an extension is the issue then it is not a Firefox bug. It is an issue with
the extension.
