Well, maybe. I use 64-bit F10-pre and Firefox (the whole browser) has
been crashing on me lately. Nothing in /var/log/messages, it just dies.
I still haven't figured out the conditions (it could be an add-on of
course).

One of the positive feature of Google's Chrome browser is that
everything (e.g. every tab) runs in a separate address space. Here's
hoping the next version of FF takes up that idea.
