In addition to 'me too'. It has similar effecet on seamonkey. Mail component is
crashing immediately after clicking on the image header. Removing mozplugeer
brings things back to normal.

It turns out the problem is with acroreader. This is a known issue with the fix.
There is a thread on fedora-test-list with a fix for FC6-test 3, but it works on
FC6 also. Here is th link:
I applied only first change and it was enough.
After that everything works (including http://www.9292ov.nl link)

It also worked for me.

This issue seems resolved, but not closed. Since you've identified this as a acroread issue, I'm closing this 
as NOTABUG. Sorry for the late bugzilla noise.
