No, but I've seen the same kind of problem with the Halifax bank site
in the UK in the last couple of weeks. It crashes Firefox and the login
doesn't work with Konqueror, but fortunately does work with Midori.
No mention of flash anywhere, but the culprit is certain to be some
stupid marketing script on the page. I'm not going to buy anything if I
can't see it because my browser crashed...
