User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8.0.7) Gecko/20060926 Ubuntu/breezy-security Firefox/1.5.0.7

Clicking a link "Radiointi yhdysvaltoihin 1.1.1939" makes browser crash. On status bar the address of the link is just "javascript:;". Clicking it opens a new window, which is loading for couple of seconds. Then the browser crashes. There are many similar links on the site, but only some of them make this happen. (Those that make this happen, do it every time and vice versa.) 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open that link

Actual Results:  
Browser crashes

Expected Results:  
Open the new window

Looks like mplayerplug-in is to blame. I crash when I have it enabled, but don't crash when it's enabled.

Yle is the finnish broadcast company, it has put some old tv and radio programs on their web-site. Unfortunately it demands media player 8.

The warning you get just tells you are not using MP8.

Ok, I know I'm using deprecated stuff. But imho this website also won't crash using XP with a current WMP, but also won't work using a more modern browser than Firefox 1.5.x. 
Somebody having a more current WMP should test if BonEcho is running, crashing, or just idle on this website. IMHO besides your crasher there's also an Tech Evangelism bug.
