Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: firefox-3.0

hi
Problem is very similar to 
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/267836
but point for keithieopia. That is not the same issue.

I'm running Ubuntu 8.10 with kernel 2.6.27-11,
GNOME 2.24.1
Xorg is 1:7.4
Firefox is 3.0.6

When entering particular pages(I can't post exact page but it was on facebook) whole system freezes. No response to to keyboard, mouse, or SysRq. It occures that firefox is making some application to go mad, which looks like this:
 
Feb 19 01:21:56 teo kernel: [46494.444059] Xorg invoked oom-killer: gfp_mask=0x1201d2, order=0, oomkilladj=0
Feb 19 01:21:56 teo kernel: [46494.444066] Pid: 16190, comm: Xorg Tainted: P          2.6.27-11-generic #1

Full message.log in attachment. 
Waiting a while(10 minutes), or causing intensive memory use will force system to kill firefox. In log You can see that I unplugged and plugged in my USB Wireless card. That killed firefox. After restarting firefox and entering the same page(address was saved apparently) problem occurred again.
