Doesn't happen on this x86_64 box. It doesn't display anything, but it does not

strace firefox http://veimages.gsfc.nasa.gov//1438/nightearth.gif 

Looks like a resource problem in X.

Jukka, you attached the gif again, not the strace
Comment 5 Jukka Ketelaars 2006-03-01 11:42:40 EST
It looks to me like the strace is in bugzilla
(https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/attachment.cgi?id=125202). If not please
let me know and I'll upload it again. The gif is there because I pasted the
strace command as entered.

How much memory do you have, and could you post your xorg.conf?
