Programs randomly closing

I recently installed Ubuntu (Jaunty) on my desktop (although I didn't think the problem warrants it being put in that section), and lately, some programs randomly close without warning, or fail to open. I'll be using Firefox, and it will act as if I've pressed ctrl+q. And sometimes I'll open a program and it will open for a fraction of a second and then quit. What should I do?

If it happens 'randomly', then it must be a h/w problem ... RAM
