Confirmed same bug in kernel Ubuntu Raring 3.8.0-11 after installation of nspluginwrapper -- problem with npconfig? Flashplugin-installer is also installed.

I had same problem and it was resolved by removing some plugins I had, leaving only left in /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/

sudo apt-get --purge remove totem-mozilla rhythmbox-mozilla

Starting the crashing command in gdb we can see that the crash occurs while the shared object /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/ is loaded.

Unintstalling "totem-mozilla" solve the problem.

The totem browser plugins are being removed anyway upstream [1]. I wonder if we can just remove them as well, or at least switch the default so they aren't installed.
