Could you post one of the crash reports for your crash?

You find it in about:crashes.

Iceweasel does not generate a crash report. However, after some more experimenting is seems that the crashing is caused by Shockwave Flash version 10.0 r45

please install firefox and then:

alternatively, the bottom of the page has links to instructions for various linux distributions.

and lastly, please update your version of flash, it's out of date and insecure.

I installed iceweasel 3.6.7-1 from the debian experimental distribution. Flash is not upgraded (I can not find a more recent version for amd64). Iceweasel does NOT crash anymore on the site mentioned.

Are you still interested in a bug report for 3.5.10 (I wasn't able to create one yet)

install the 32bit version of flash, get rid of nspluginwrapper, and install symbols for your iceweasel.

do not hold a stance on "i insist on using an exploitable 64bit plugin instead of a supported current 32bit plugin". if your iceweasel is 64bit, then replace it with a 32bit version. if you can't do this, replace iceweasel w/ a 32bit build.

no, i'm not particularly interested in a combination of out of date exploitable flash plus ancient firefox. however, if you provide a stack, i will investigate it.
Please reopen the bug report when you have a stack.  Thanks.
