please load about:plugins and copy your java plugin bits, you can use tools>addons>plugins to disable java, the crash should go away. https://developer.mozilla.org/En/How_to_get_a_stacktrace_for_a_bug_report
Thanks for the tip. But this is NOT an acceptable solution for sites that may not work nicely with JAVA. I'm sure that we have the technology to develop a simple method for detecting and warning the user about problematic sites without crashing - instead of asking the user to disable JAVA before visiting a site.
works for me - Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9.1) Gecko/20090616 Firefox/3.5 Make sure you are running the latest version of Java, v6 u14. You can check at http://java.com/en/download/installed.jsp?detect=jre&try=1 If you need additional help with your computer's Java the support forums maybe of help http://support.mozilla.com/tiki-view_forum.php?forumId=1&openpost=1 This is likely to be an issue that is local to your computer.
Verified that latest version is installed. Congratulations! You have the recommended Java installed (Version 6 Update 14). Kevin mentions that LInux does not exhibit this problem. My system is running windows xp.

Since we don't have a stack trace or crash ID (see comment 5) all we have are guesses. Since it's a heavy Java site it would be nice to rule Java out or in as a first cut.

Currently running 3.5.3 20090824 and http://ndt.anl.gov/ is loading without errors. I'm unsure what FF changes fixed the problem this OP, but this FF version is stable. Go ahead and close the bug. Thank you
