If I launch Firefox from terminal, when it crash it says "Illegal instruction" (nothing else).

Expected Results: Errr ability to play the game?
By the way, it's Minefield (64 bit browser with 64 flash), is it still Firefox?
No crash for me on 32-bit Linux, so probably 64-bit specific. To answer your question, the product to put a Minefield bug under is Firefox with Trunk as the version. Seeing as it's not a Firefox bug, but rather Flash, it goes under core:plugins. Though, if this is a Flash bug it's not a Mozilla bug. CCing Macromedia to see if they want to look into this here.

well, it appears to be minefield's problem, since the bug is no longer occur with Namoroka (3.6a2pre) (and same flash version)

FWIW, we recently added a plugins product to make it easier for everyone to handle plugin related problems. However if upgrading firefox made your problem "go away", and running the older version of firefox causes the problem to recur (please check?) then the problem really does belong here instead of in plugins:flash (adobe). Please check (and indicate your version of flash). OTOH, it's possible the bug was caused by bad site content and a buggy flash player, in which case it's possible that the site worked around the flash bug. So if you can't reproduce with that same flash player and firefox 3.6a1pre 20090807 then this bug probably belongs in Plugins:Flash.
