Yep, this does indeed crash Firefox because of Flash. I use the Adblock 
extension, and I put *.swf in as a filter to prevent this. When I want 
to see a Flash file I can remove it temporarily. When I did that for 
this site it crashed. It helps prevent this problem, but it's not an 
ideal solution.
