I checked in the Firefox Tools/PageInfo for both those web pages, and they both reference the same Flash application. Is it possible that the debug version of the flash player installed by FB3 has a problem with starting/stopping/restart the same application?
Ok, so now I tried removing libflashplayer.so from my ~/.mozilla/plugins directory, and the above web pages display as expected (the flash app does not display of course) and FF does not crash.
Further, I downloaded and installed the latest player just released on http://labs.adobe.com/downloads/flashplayer9.html, and again, the above pages work as expected (the app now displays correctly) and FF does not crash.
So it seems like there is something wrong with the debug player installed by Flex Builder 3. :-(
I have been having this problem too. Since i installed FB Linux, my firefox crashes often when there is flash content on the page. does not crash every time though, just often.
voted for the bug.
sure, the install is firefox-188.8.131.52-1.fc7.rpm, and Help/About says 184.108.40.206
I have also tried the Mozilla Firefox 220.127.116.11 now, still with the same (bad) result

Can you check if any of your other plugins is causing this?
Would it be possible to install another firefox instance and link the FB plugin to that one only? I'm thinking that might isolate the alpha plugin from upsetting your regular browsing...
I tried safe-mode firefox (i.e. no plugins) and the problem still remains
Same issue here. I'm running Firefox 22.214.171.124 on Ubuntu.
As a workaround, I have installed Firefox addon "Flashblock" (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/433) which prevents all flash content from starting unless I want it to. Kind of annoying to have to do this, but it means that the debug flash player is less likely to crash my browser straight away.

This looks like a bug with Flash player debug plugin.
Please download the Flash player latest version of debug plugin 9.0.115
from the location http://www.adobe.com/support/flashplayer/downloads.html
The link should show - 12/3/2007 - Update Linux Debugger versions (aka
debug players or content debuggers)... Download the linux debugger and
You dont need standalone player though it comes bundled together. After
you untar the folder you will see /plugin/ directory which contains
copy this to your $HOME/.mozilla/plugins/ directory... for root users it
is /usr/lib/firefox* ...
Relaunch the browser and confirm if you are running Debug version of FP
- by visiting this URL
Have downloaded, and tried the original web pages and they work fine. Also tried FB3 debug mode and that also seems fine - looks like we have a winner!
Thank you REast for the update. Any one else tried the same?
Yes! I had installed the Flex development for Eclipse in Linux, and had the same issue. Full flex sites killed Firefox every time. Replacing the file and restarting Firefox fixed it. Almost too easy.
I do have one thing to add though, once I downloaded the newest version and untarred it, I actually had to open up flash_player_9_linux_dev/plugin/debugger/install_flash_player_9_linux.tar.gz and then in the directory install_flash_player_9_linux/ I found the file libflashplayer.so.

Yes. libflashplayer.so is the actual Flash player browser plugin that
should go into your plugins directory -
say /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/ or /usr/lib/firefox*/plugins/ or
/home/username/.mozilla/firefox/plugins/* which ever applicable.
