Report that this has been solved is not true. The only workaround at this time is to disable javascript.

Check the Add-ons and see if Microsoft .NET Framework Assistant is loaded. Version 1.1 was installed on my browser and I was experiencing the same symptoms. Upgraded to version 1.2.1 and now can read stories on foxnews.com.

Same issue with Firefox running under Linux. Check of Firefox with WinXP finds FoxNews now running a headline crawl on their site that crashes the browser when that crawl begins. Up to that point, not a problem.

Firefox (Linux) crashing with FoxNews and its headline crawl can be stopped by unchecking the Javascript box under Preferences, found under the Edit pulldown. Found that solution by looking around the problems noted with browser crashes.
