Perhaps a similar problem...
On an openSUSE 11.2 installation I have the problem that, when listening to the BBC audio and at the same time browsing internet pages, the BBC flash player often crashes. In my case there is a Shockwave Flash plugin in Firefox that makes using flash possible, and although it is inconvenient, I haven't taken the trouble to find out if the problem is the BBC flash player, the plugin, the combination as used in SUSE 11.2, or something quite different.
It may be that something similar is happening in your case and taking Firefox down with it.
