That looks like an Issue with the java plugin

I was able to reproduce this on the latest Linux trunk nightly (Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9.2a1pre) Gecko/20090702 Minefield/3.6a1pre) with a clean profile and only the null plugin. The crash seems to happen whenever a page that uses a plugin is loaded (I believe the default Minefield homepage is in this category). Trying to open the Add-ons window or going to about:plugins also crashes the browser.

Do you still think it's the fault of the Java plugin?

sure, because it isn't possible to reproduce this without the java plugin.

Okay, upon further investigation I've found that timeless is right. Even though I thought I removed the Java plugin from my system, one of the shared libraries was still there, and it was linked to from '/etc/alternatives/'. Renaming the library stopped the crashes.
marking invalid (java plugin bug, the crash itself should be solved if we put Java to OOP)
