Maybe a Shockwave Flash ad is being fetched on a page? I had to disable my Flash plug-in to stop that very problem.

Flash bug reports about this... take your pick:

mozilla-firebird dies when accessing some sites

mozilla: Mozilla crashes on some websites when I install flash

Mozilla's process dies when visiting this webpage.

[meta] flash crash bugs with linux

[META] Macromedia flash player known problems which hard or impossible to fix in mozilla code
