I've encountered the same problem with that latest Firefox on FC6:

In my case the offending SVG file is located here:
Comment 2 Matěj Cepl 2007-07-18 13:31:52 EDT
Fedora Core 5 is no longer supported, could you please reproduce this with the
updated version of the currently supported distribution (Fedora Core 6, or
Fedora 7, or Rawhide)? If this issue turns out to still be reproducible, please
let us know in this bug report.  If after a month's time we have not heard back
from you, we will have to close this bug as CANTFIX.

Setting status to NEEDINFO, and awaiting information from the reporter.

Thanks in advance.

The SVG in the links mentioned above now appear to render without crash or
error. I'm using Firefox on up-to-date Fedora 7. 

Comment 4 Matěj Cepl 2007-08-28 10:57:07 EDT
We haven't got any reply to the last question about reproducability of the bug
with Fedora Core 6, Fedora 7, or Fedora devel. Mass closing this bug, so if you
have new information that would help us fix this bug, please reopen it with the
additional information.
