Hrm... I don't even know if this is our fault. 

Jorge, could you download 1.5 and see if this still occurs? 1.0.2 is super old.

I tried to emerge 1.5 from gentoo but the package does not compile on my system (obviously some files missing).

Updated to the newest available version provided by gentoo: mozilla-firefox 1.0.7-r4 and mozilla-flash 7.0.61.
But the problem persists (same backtrace).

BTW: sometimes I'm able to open the URL, but 90% of the times firefox (or the plugin) crashes.

Illegal-Operation-Popup on W2k (Firefox 1.0.7)

Maybe this might help: when I access the URL with my Firefox 1.0.7 on W2K, I get the attached popup.

Jorge, the stack I posted in comment 3 is from one of my own trunk builds. So you can disregard my comment 2 now.

I get this bug with Firefox 1.5 as well as with Mozilla 1.7.12 on a gentoo linux when starting the Flash based analysis software we sell. As far as I can tell, in my case it is loosely related to large amounts of XML data being parsed. I can confirm that the bug occurs right away after loading the page and only on 90% of the occasions.
My guess would be that this is a bug in the flash plugin. Here's what I get on stderr/stdout, if I start the browser from a terminal (note that the messages are almost identical for Firefox and Mozilla):

/usr/libexec/mozilla-launcher: line 119:  6195 Speicherzugriffsfehler  "$mozbin" "$@"
firefox-bin exited with non-zero status (139)

/usr/libexec/mozilla-launcher: line 119:  6238 Speicherzugriffsfehler  "$mozbin" "$@"
mozilla-bin exited with non-zero status (139)

Hope this helps. It is a very annoying bug for me, as I have to use our application every day and I sometimes need to restart the browser and login again about ten times in a row.

I want to confirm I see such a bug too. I see it when going to http://www.hell.co.nz/ and clicking on Christchurch (within the flash app).

And although it is flash-related, I think the bug is within Firefox (I've got under FedoraCore4), because I also have Opera installed, and it uses the SAME FLASH .SO AS FIREFOX (libflashplayer.so) - and yet has no problem with that site.

I want to confirm that I am seeing this bug, too, in both Firefox ( and Seamonkey (1.1.2) on Linux. I don't recall seeing this bug until fairly recently, and I'm not sure what version caused the problem. One interesting thing about this bug is that I can download and install the latest version of the Flash Player, and if I do so and then go to the Adobe site that is intended to test the Flash Player, it appears to work correctly. That is, it works, and there is no crash. HOWEVER, if I visit certain other sites, in particular cnn.com and java.com, then I get an immediate crash. It almost makes me wonder whether there is some conflict between the Flash Player and Java, although this is pure speculation.
Do you still see this problem using latest version of Firefox and Flash (10)?

If you do, please comment.
If you do not see the problem, please close the bug - don't use resolution=FIXED, change resolution to:
- INVALID if you believe the problem was flash player
- WORKSFORME if you believe the problem was in Firefox
- INCOMPLETE if it is impossible to test (url or testcase is gone)
Whiteboard: closeme 2009-03-08
The stack in comment 3 looks like it was a Flash plug-in bug.
Please file a new bug report if the problem reoccurs in Firefox 3 with
Flash 10 (or newer).  Thanks.
