Something very curious just happened to me. I opened a new tab in Mozilla, typed "faq.cprogramming.com" and pressed enter. Just before the page had fully loaded, BAM! Mozilla closed. I assume it was a segmentation fault of some sort. My Mozilla version is pretty old so I just thought that it was some random bug. So I launched it again at the same thing happened. So then I launched Konqueror and tried it. Another segmentation fault, but this time I got a KCrash dialog box. So, for reference, I used wget to get the source for the page, though I doubt it will be very useful.

Mozilla 1.7.2
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.2) Gecko/20040819 Debian/1.7.2-3

Konqueror 3.2.3 (using KDE 3.2.3)

wget -r -l 2 http://faq.cprogramming.com/cgi-bin/smartfaq.cgi
It must have been one of the ads. But since I don't have enough information for a bug report, I didn't know where to put this, so I thought I'd put it here. :)

Second 4,000th post! :)

Sounds like you encountered a bug in the Linux Flash viewer, most likely. That would be why both Konqueror and Firefox are affected.
