We need a Stack tracewith debug symbols. For Mozilla.org binary builds it's very easy because we include the Breakpad crash reporter ( https://developer.mozilla.org/en/How_to_get_a_stacktrace_for_a_bug_report ) but that's not available for builds from a distributation like Ferdora. In that case you have to get the debug symbols from Fedora and run Firefox in GDB. I can not explain how to do that, you might want to ask the Fedora support.
this turns out almost certainly to have been caused by a video downloading in the background. it is now removed and now the page loads fine. I've asked the page maintainer for a URL to the vid.
This could be a plugin issue but the used plugin depends on the video file.
Can you identify the blog post that triggers this, so the bug won't "mysteriously disappear" when it falls off of the front page? A stack trace would be good too :)
