Do you have Java installed and is it enabled for your browser?

I would suspect it's a Java-related problem, too. I often see people complain about their Mozilla/Firefox crashing as it loads a site that uses Java. Almost all the time it's either symlinking the wrong version of Java plugin file or copying the Java plugin file instead of symlinking it.

Which the version of JRE/JDK are you using? Go to your Mozilla plugins directory and run the following command:
Code:
ls -l libjavaplugin_oji.so
What is the output from the command?

Also, which version of Mozilla are you using?

Yea, thats ussually the case. This same thing happened to me awhile back with one or two java help/chat sites.. I didn't care enough to research it. It actually happens all the time and my stuff is setup right. If yours is as well, I would be more prone to blame it on browser identification than anything else. Chat sites are the only thing it will do it on.... Firefox and, I think Mozilla, has a plugin that fools web sites into thinking your using Internet explorer. It just changes your Browers broadcast ID..... I forget where that plugin is. On a mozilla site if I remember correctly. You might want to try that as a last resort.

Like you say there is an extension for Firefox that lets you change the UA string to "fool" the stupid Web sites that only accept IE. I'd doubt it's the User Agent string ("broadcast ID") that's causing the crash, though. I recall being able to use Yahoo! chat via Firefox.
