User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.9.0.1) Gecko/2008071615 Fedora/3.0.1-1.fc9 Firefox/3.0.1
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.9.0.1) Gecko/2008071615 Fedora/3.0.1-1.fc9 Firefox/3.0.1

Firefox crashes when opening http://dailykos.com.

This has only started in the past few days. No idea what is causing it. Site opens normally and displays ok in Konqueror.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open http://dailykos.com

Actual Results:  
Browser window closes (crash).

Expected Results:  
Displays lots of left-wing diaries about US politics.
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.0.3) Gecko/2008092417 Firefox/3.0.3

No crash here, at least not on Windows. Did you also test this in safe-mode?

Try disabling the Flash plugin (Tools->Add-ons), then restart Firefox.
Does it still crash?

You should also update to Firefox 3.0.3. (and update any other packages Firefox uses)

Testing all other plugins would be the next step:

If you can't find what's crashing try a Mozilla build, and a crash report ID and/or stack trace will be needed.

It's working at the moment (on 64 bits). My 32 bit box has not had any problems with the site. Fedora does not have any updates for firefox at the moment.

Resolve as WORKSFORME unless someone can still reproduce the crash.

@Reporter, we have not heard back from you in a while, so I am closing this bug as INCOMPLETE. You can reopen this bug if more information becomes available. Some helpful information you can provide us is found at http://quality.mozilla.org/bug-writing-guidelines. You should also use a recent version of Firefox, from http://www.getfirefox.com.
