a) be sure that you have the latest WMP Plugin installed - http://port25.technet.com/pages/windows-media-player-firefox-plugin-download.aspx b) if you still crash post a crash id from about:crashes - https://developer.mozilla.org/en/How_to_get_a_stacktrace_for_a_bug_report
Ops. Thank you. I should ask Google first. But firefox shouldn't crashes, it should show a message. That's my opinion. Again, Thanks.

A Plugin runs in the same process as Firefox. That means that the plugin becomes a parth of Firefox and Firefox can not survive a plugin crash. The solution are out-of-process plugins and that is another bug and it's planned to do that in the near future.
