No freeze for me with Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:2.0b9pre) Gecko/20101227 Firefox/4.0b9pre. Can you please update your flash player and create a new profile and test again? http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Managing profiles

I am not running Windows. I also stated that it works fine with Windows.
I never said you were running windows. Did you do what I had suggested?
I do not have a flash player installed
Alright then, did you create a fresh profile?
Yes. Here is an explanation from an X developer. Even though the X server should probably behave nicer in front of this, this is one more site that exposes this long standing Firefox bug or mis-behaviour where it sends full-resolution versions of the images it displays to the X server for *nothing* as far as I know. Create a 10000x10000 uniform jpeg image, display it on a web page using width="100" height="100". It will probably make the X server explode more or less badly, while the scaling of the image is done in the firefox process, not the X server.
The site loads fine with the xxxterm web browser, which uses webkit to render the site.
