firefox segfault


firefox segfaults ALL THE TIME as a user, but doesn't seem to as root. strace gives me this:


Code:
./firefox/run-mozilla.sh: line 424:  8997 Segmentation fault      "$prog" ${1+"$@"}
[{WIFEXITED(s) && WEXITSTATUS(s) == 139}], 0) = 8992

sigreturn()                             = ? (mask now [])
rt_sigaction(SIGINT, {SIG_DFL}, {0x8075fa0, [], 0}, 8) = 0

rt_sigprocmask(SIG_SETMASK, [], NULL, 8) = 0
rt_sigprocmask(SIG_BLOCK, NULL, [], 8)  = 0
stat64("./firefox/init.d/K*", 0xbffff1f0) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
rt_sigprocmask(SIG_SETMASK, [], NULL, 8) = 0

rt_sigprocmask(SIG_BLOCK, NULL, [], 8)  = 0
rt_sigprocmask(SIG_SETMASK, [], NULL, 8) = 0
exit_group(139)                         = ?
i have reinstalled, i have upgraded. firefox 2.0, but it did it with 1.5 as well. i compared the startup strace for my user account and for root, and they are identical (until it crashes as user) the .firefox/init.d/ and .mozilla/firefox/init.d do not exist anywhere... any thoughts?

Sorry for the bump, but I am also having this problem. I am running slackware 10.2 and I'll just be loading any page when my firefox just goes away. It's freaking frustrating. I'm using firefox 2.0 and this is the error I get in the terminal:

/usr/lib/firefox/run-mozilla.sh: line 131: 31774 Segmentation fault "$prog" ${1+"$@"}

I really want this fixed, could anyone please help. I've seen several other threads about this but no one seems to have found a satisfactory solution which is discouraging. Problem started right after I did a slapt-get --upgrade and then installed Freerock gnome. removed Freerock as I didn't much like it anyway. I know it's not related to flash or javascript, as it happens when none of these things are running. Someone please help, thank you.
