To me it happened when loading java content (banking service) in Firefox. I don't know if that qualifies as the same bug, but it seems the results were pretty much the same.

Note: Upon trying to access the java content again I thought it crashed again, but after 1-2 mins the "Run java applet"-dialog opened and all was well.

I had this crash when entering to the page www.infobae.com in Chorme 15

To give more info about my config: Using Ubuntu 11.10 x64 fully updated on an Intel notebook (Intel CPU and Intel X3100 GPU). I am using the 64bit version of Flash.

I was checking my gmail in Chromium. Running the 64 bit port completely up to date.
