I reinstalled Fedora, and also checked the cd I installed from to see if
that would fix the problem.  I believe the issues I had previously may
have been caused by putting /home on its own lvm, which I did not do
when I reinstalled.  I wanted to do this so I could install future
releases without having to erase the home folder.  Unfortunately, I
don't have the time continue to reinstall Fedora over and over to
confirm that putting /home on its own lvm is the source of the issue,
but maybe someone else can replicate this?
    
I'd be awfully surprised if this were the root cause.

The suggestion to run the failing application from a console, and look
for errors on the console and the X log, sounds like the best plan of
attack to me.

  
Before reinstalling, the programs that crashed when I tried to edit
their preferences were all of the ones I tried: Thunderbird, Empathy,
and Mozilla.  The automatic bug reporting tool crashed the system when
trying to report some of the bugs too.

The system was fully update when I was experiencing the crashes.

Reinstalling solved all of my problems except one.  Keyboard shortcuts
are still not saved.  However, this issue is trivial compared to the
frequent crashes I was experiencing before.
    
oh, ok.  Hm, odd.

I just got keyboard shortcuts to work by enabling compiz.  Compiz was disabled by default.
