One good way to get source to use as starting point on a bug  
reduction is to use the Firefox "save as complete HTML" feature.

Another option is to save off just the HTML file, and then use the  
Safari Activity window to find out and get at the other resources of  
the page, but this requires more manual steps.


PS Have you filed this bug in bugzilla yet? With a crashing bug, it's  
often possible to figure it out just by looking at the backtrace and  
reproducing the crash in the debugger, without the need for a reduction.
