Firefox connects to the server and the page starts loading, but before the page is fully loaded Firefox crashes.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Type "" into the url bar and hit enter.

Actual Results:  
Firefox crashes.

Expected Results:  
Firefox displays the page.

New firefox profile used, so no extensions were installed.
Could you post a talkback ID of the crash?

I suspect this is a crash in the flash plugin.
Which flash plugin version are you using?
Try and see if updating to the flash 9 version.

Installed flash latest version "9,0,16,0", still crashes Firefox.

I do not get the option to submit a talkback. Talkback is turned on, but no UI for it appears when the browser crashes.
Ah sorry, apparently, it loads Java, so this is very likely a crash caused by the Java plugin. I had Java disabled, so I didn't notice it loaded Java.

Yes, Java it must be, as disabling Java stops my browser from crashing on that page.

WFM and I'm going to assume this is now working for Todd since there hasn't been any updates to this bug in almost three years.  Please reopen if you can reproduce
