Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: firefox-3.0

Opening the following page: http://blog.oup.com/2009/03/science-fiction/
Causes the gnome-panel to crash and restart infinitely until the tab with this page is closed. Firefox remains fully functional during the whole procedure. Window borders also disappeared at one point suggesting that metacity was also restarted. Compiz is not being used.

I tried upgrading all the software and restarting the computer fully.
This also happens in a fresh guest session.

The installation is an upgrade from 8.10.
