Okay,

Then i probably has something to do with either firefox 2.0 on ubuntu, or the flash 9 beta player.

Okay, i re tested,

And i can't get firefox to crash anymore.

There's a lot of different adds on the page now,

The one banner that i remeber being there (and isn't there right now) is the "im an apple, im a pc" add.

Anyway, this can be closed, and il see if i can actually locate the banner that crashed on me the next time this happens.
