I read a similar thing on a FreeBSD list this morning.  I can't remember
which list off hand, but I made this note in my kernel config for later:

/* options      sem             # POSIX semaphores - man 4 sem
 *                              or /boot/loader.conf: sem_load="YES"
 *                              to avoid dump when running www/firefox35
 *                              after the install firefox FF3.5 welcome site
 *                              has an html5 video, which will crash.
