This is unbelievable. I ran firefox (small f) in a terminal, loaded the
BBC website and radio played perfectly, I could not make it crash. Since
then I have tried several times running Firefox in the usual way from
the tool bar icon, going to the BBC website and the radio plays without
crashing. Problem cured for the time being but not solved.
