KDE-3.5.6/X crashes/restarts because of the gnash plugin and firefox on an AMD64.

The version of gnash is:

The version of firefox is:
$ /usr/local/firefox/firefox -v
Mozilla Firefox, Copyright (c) 1998 - 2006

I seem to be able to reproduce the crash by going to and clicking "nhl" on the left.
I don't know if that will work after I restart my computer. :-(
I have finally traced the random crashes down to firefox and gnash.
The browser works without gnash.

I have no clue how to debug but I can recompile the browser and/or gnash with a little help to add debugging.

It'll be much easier if someone can reproduce the crash. :-)
Still crashes after rebooting.
I think it is the flash ads that appear at the top.
You may have to click "NHL" a few times because I think only some of the ads are flash/cause the crash.
Isn't it weird that a plugin could crash firefox and KDE/X?
