Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: firefox-3.0

firefox 3, ubuntu 8.04: whenever i try to view the myspace page of ney york artist laurie anderson, firefox just shuts down without a warning. 
This happens after a large part of the site has already been loaded and the media player has started playing. 

On restarting firefox i get the choice to resume the unexpectedly
interrupted session, but when i do so, same problem.

Trying to hit the interrupt button while the page is getting loaded does
not help either. First the browser ignores the interruption request ,
and next thing is the shutdown.

So i have no idea which of the elements on mrs. andersons myspace page
causes the crash.
