Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: firefox-3.0

Playing embedded flash video (using the shockwave flash-nonfree plugin 9.0 r115) almost instantly causes a major crash in firefox-3.0b4. The browser freezes and then terminate itself.  
All the crashes (about 7 in 2 days)  I experienced were while navigating Youtube and playing embedded flash video.

I hope this report can be of information.
