I have no problem with a Mailman 2.1.5 installation in RedHat FC2 with
either firefox or

Presumably in your case, it crashes on retrieval of the "Administrator
Authentication" page or perhaps in trying to fill in the password, but
you seem to say below that you have tried turning off password fill in.

I am able to visit <https://www.cs.appstate.edu/mailman/admin/mailman>
with firefox and I get an "unable to verify certificate for
unknown reasons", but when I accept the certificate I see the
"Administrator Authentication" page and no crash, but this identifies
itself as a Mailman 2.1.9 installation, so maybe it isn't the one
you're talking about. Can you successfully visit that page?
