GrSecurity-related Firefox crash

I’m seeing a weird crash of Firefox (1.0PR) on a Debian testing box apparently due to Firefox trying something that GrSec doesn’t like. Specifically,

kernel: grsec: attempted resource overstep by requesting 4096 for RLIMIT_CORE against limit 0 by (firefox-bin:3092) UID(1000) EUID(1000), parent (firefox-bin:30648) UID(1000) EUID(1000)

This is still on 2.4.25 though, so I should probably update that.

Curiously, it only happens when visiting amazon.com and only then sometimes, though pretty regularly on that site. I hate to submit any type of bug report to either firefox or grsec for this since I haven’t had time to look into it more. But if anyone out there has a quick fix0r for this, please let me know.
