I verified that crash happens on WinXP SP2 and on WinVista. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Just navigate to "http://sg.news.yahoo.com/rtrs/20080321/tbs-goldas-socgen-turkey-955c2a1.html" Actual Results: Firefox crashes Expected Results: Firefox should just have kept working and letting me browse further
Page loaded fine for me. Try disabling Java first, by going to Tools > Options > Content > Enable Java - uncheck that. Then try reopening the page. This solved one instant crash on every visit to a certain page for me. Also, if you have any addons, that would be relevant to note. Try disabling Adblock Plus or NoScript, if you have those.
Navigating to another URL causes an immediate Firefox 3 Beta 5 crash: http://www.yahoo.com/s/848868
Interestingly, I cannot reproduce the crashes for neither of URLs on a virtual PC, but crashes happen on 3 of my real PCs with both URLs. One of PC-s is running Windows Vista, the other two have WinXP SP2.

Indeed, when I disable the Yahoo Application State Plugin, application does not crash anymore.
