In Google Reader, I am subscribed to the "Official Gmail Blog". Twice now, when I've clicked on the link to bring up the entries for the blog, then clicked on the latest entry, it has crashed immediately with this signature.
I get similar crashes when I load the Amazon Cloud player:
I used the Amazon Cloud player yesterday, so this is probably a very recent regression.
Andrew: I tried to repro on Amazon Cloud player and with Google Reader using Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.6; rv:15.0) Gecko/15.0 Firefox/15.0a1 but so far I have not luck reproducing. Wondering if maybe an extension is tickling the crash?
Yeah, it turns out I can't reproduce on a clean profile either. I'll try figuring out if it is an addon.
I still get it without any extensions, in my main profile. I tried enabling/disabling incremental GC but it didn't seem to matter. If I disable Flash, then it loads up without crashing, but of course it doesn't actually play anything.
I have Flash 126.96.36.199, which is apparently out of date. I'll try upgrading it.
Both that Google Reader entry and the Amazon Cloud player work just fine with Flash 188.8.131.52, so maybe this was some kind of Flash bug.
Adding Sal from Adobe - would be interesting to know why that flash version is crashing in this instance. I was running with the latest version Version: 184.108.40.206 and that was likely why I was not able to reproduce the crash.
I couldn't reproduce on a clean profile even with 233, so maybe my profile was just mangled in some odd way.
i'm glad it's working for you on a clean profile. 11,2,202,235 was a security update only.
It's hit by many users and is currently #3 top crasher in today's build.
The regression range is:
It might be a regression from bug 749678.

I can reproduce this consistently in my daily profile by visiting http://blog.mozilla.org/about_mozilla/2012/05/08/tracking-the-trackers-become-a-mobile-test-driver-and-more/ and clicking on the "teaser reel" link.
I can also reproduce it consistently by opening http://udp.github.com in a new tab.
Indeed, there is clearly a regression with plugins using OpenGL, which means in particular Flash on Mac OSX, from bug 749678.
I just backed it out on inbound:
With this commit message:
Unfortunately, in-process plugins using OpenGL break the assumption made by these patches, that the current GL context is only changed by GLContext::MakeCurrent. Another issue, regardless of in-process, is that our host-side code in nsCoreAnimationSupport.mm uses direct CGL calls, bypassing GLContext.
There are no crashes after 15.0a1/20120513. It's fixed by the backout of bug 749678.
