When trying to access this URL, about half the page loads, then Firefox blips out of existence instantly. No warning or anything. It's happened three times in a row now; all other web pages are working fine. I'm not trying to get random people to go to this website, by the way....

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to
2. Firefox crashes 
3. Rinse and repeat.
Actual Results:  
It crashed, as before. When I restart it, I get a "Firefox closed unexpectedly" message asking if I want to restore my session; if I do, the crash happens again.

Expected Results:  
Loaded the page as per normal

I have, but have currently disabled, the Web Developer extension. is running though. I'm using the default theme.

Computer: Dell Latitude D620 laptop, 2G ram, Windows XP service pack 2.

I just restarted my computer, tried again, and got the same result. Odd - it could be a fault with my hardware, but it's strange that this hasn't happened with any other websites. It works fine in IE7.

Works normally here. Do you have the latest flash version installed?

I just installed it fresh from adobe's website (I think it was the latest version anyway) and tried again, and got the same behaviour. Firefox just crashed when trying to load gmail (although it generated an error report this time) so I'm beginning to think reinstalling FF might help... I'll try that
