Please provide more info, what version of firefox ? What plugins and extensions do you have installed ? How was this firefox installed, is it the official version or one provided by your distro ?

firefox crashes

I don't know if this is what 'texmex' is refering to but it might be a Ram issue as firefox is heavy on and that might cause a problem if yours is spread thin. You could try Opera that uses less and is free.

Start up firefox from a terminal emulator on your desktop, and see if you get any informative messages before it crashes. In all likelihood you'll at least be able to do a web search for the message, and see what others have come up with.
