More description needed. Anything interesting in /var/log/messages? Output any error message? GUI window froze or closed? Give us a hint.

This is the part of output from /var/log/messages, when Firefox crashed.

Nov 24 17:50:02 Ferrells gconfd (lchris-2823): starting (version 2.20.1), pid 2823 user 'lchris'
...
Nov 24 17:50:03 Ferrells gconfd (lchris-2825): Failed to get lock for daemon, exiting: Failed to lock '/tmp/gconfd-lchris/lock/ior': probably another process has the lock, or your operating system has NFS file locking misconfigured (Resource temporarily unavailable)


Not clear. You're using KDE or Gnome? I thought gconfd was a gnome thing, looks like this is from when you logged in. Or else for some reason firefox is causing gconfd to start again, which would sort of explain the error message, if not the real cause.

GUI window froze or closed?

Are you using any NFS mounts? I've had similar logs before, when trying to use an NFS mounted home directory. Something about my config sets gnome and NFS for murder.
