I have installed firefox 3.5,1 port (make install clean) on FreeBSD

Do others experience it? Is there a fix for this?

Same here. It crashes...
pid 26921 (firefox-bin), uid 1001: exited on signal 12

Rebuilt kernel with
options         P1003_1B_SEMAPHORES     # POSIX-style semaphores

Now it plays Theora video and does not crash any more. :)

You can load sem.ko to the same effect, FWIW. The UPDATING entry for
firefox3-devel mentions this in the following part:

If your Firefox crashes with the following message while viewing a
HTML5 page: "Bad system call (core dumped)" you need to load the sem
module (kldload sem).

To load sem on every boot put the following into your
/boot/loader.conf: sem_load="YES"
