I can confirm that: k12ltsp 6, firefox 1.5, 1280x1024x15 screen, booted 
from pxe
(and same behaviour with firefox 2 on k12ltsp 7).

With 64 MB RAM even a page just with images crashes firefox 
(http://www.alp-tschingla.ch, open section "Bilder").

With 128 MB RAM the same page works.

So maybe the hardware requirements for the clients should be updated 
because nowadays many people use a screen resolution bigger than 
800x600 pixels.
