Expected Results:  
works for me on  Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.9a4pre) Gecko/2007042613 GranParadiso/3.0a4pre and  Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv: Gecko/2007042503 BonEcho/ -> no crash

I see some flash content on this site.

Do you crash with a new profile (http://kb.mozillazine.org/Profile_Manager) and/or safe mode (http://kb.mozillazine.org/Safe_Mode) ? 

Do you have a talkback ID from the crash (http://kb.mozillazine.org/Talkback) ?

New profile: Crash (or crash after reload of page)
Safe mode: Crash (or crash after reload of page)
New profile + Safe mode: No Crash!

I guess Adblock could be the problem causer then... 

I will try to get a Talkback ID shortly...

I saw this too. Problem is that it only crashed the first time and that talkback didn't fire.

I can't get Talkback to start even though I just installed it and specifically
turned it on.

Will be out of office for the rest of the day.

Talkback report

Managed to crash it again and get a report.
Michael, that isn't a talkback report and not really helpful. Have you installed the nightly build with Talkback? If yes it seems to be not activated. Please have a look into the extension directory of the program folder. Use talkback.exe to activate or getting the Talkback id. Hopefully you are able to reproduce the crash. Thanks.
do you still see this problem using FF 3.5 beta**, or latest update of FF 3.0 started in safe mode***?

If yes, please comment
If not, please close with resolution set to WORKSFORME. Or INVALID (if problem was extension or the like)
