Firefox crashes after google search for "korean raw beef"

When I do a search for 'korean raw beef' in google or from the google toolbar, firefox crashes without sending a crash report. I can do the same search from yahoo without any problem. I can search for other things without problems. I'm guessing that there is something on that google results page that is causing firefox to crash.

Try to disable http://kb.mozillazine.org/network.prefetch-next

To open the about:config page, type about:config in the location (address) bar and press the Enter key, just like you type the url of a website to open a website. If you see a warning then you can confirm that you want to access that page.

Hi,

Sorry, I did not realize that someone had replied to this post until just now. I tried disabling network-prefetch-next. Firefox crashed 3 times before I could actually scroll to it and disable it. I tried the search string again and firefox still crashed. Firefox runs fine otherwise. Just can't visit certain pages without a crash though.
