Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: firefox


Open the following Wikipedia page in a new tab: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Auxetics
As the page renders, firefox will crash and the browser window will disappear.  If you start
firefox from the command line and repeat the steps, the following is printed to the console
as firefox crashes: 

> firefox
Floating point exception (core dumped)

I have no firefox plugins/addons installed except for the nonfree flash
plugin.

each other somehow).
