On my machine (and from other testimonies on the internet) this error is caused by the Shockwave Flash plug-in.
I use Firefox 3.0.3 from Mozilla and the release of the plug-in.
This error appears when a Flash animation or video starts playing.
But it doesn't seem to cause malfunctioning of the plug-in (no crash) and all works as it should, at least for me.
For now I don't know of any solution to that anomaly.
