Did you compile firefox yourself or is it a binary?

Do you have any extensions installed? I fiddled with urbandictionary.com for a couple of minutes using Firefox but wasn't able to reproduce your problem. I am using my own Firefox 1.0+ build and have no extensions installed.

I fixed my own problem. I downloaded slackgrade (a nice GUI tool) http://slackgrade.sourceforge.net/ ...and upgraded all of my packages. I rebooted, and...to my surprise everything works perfect and is smoother than ever! No more crashes in firefox...and everything just seems to be running better. I'm guessing the fix was simply upgrading one or more of the required packages for running firefox. Anywho...fixed!

RoaCh Of DisCor, you might want to edit the url, the "...and" at the end makes it not reachable.
