this is not the only page it crashed on me but I don't remember any other at the moment AFAIK neither one of them had flash on them or any other strange technology.

That page is *loaded* with flash. Chatted with reporter on IRC; installing flashblock works around the crash. 

Pretty sure this is that flash execmem+selinux bug everyone's been seeing.

Just to add - it crash before it is opened. Just starting firefox. If any content cause anything, then it is the fedora start page.

Comment 5 Arne Chr. Jorgensen 2009-11-28 18:16:26 UTC
Disregard my comment above.  In my case it seem to be SELinux preventing it from running: "The firefox application attempted to change the access protection of memory
(e.g., allocated using malloc)."

The Automatic Bug Reporting Tool directed me to this page, and I didn't read this report in full before adding a comment. Sorry....
