Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have had the same problem happened to me a few times. When I have had the problem, what I have been able to figure out is that it has been caused by a buggy Java app in whatever page I am browing at the moment and that caused the Mozilla/Firefox crash. Sometimes updating the pertaining Macromedia plug-in (Flash, etc.) has eliminated or minimized the problem. Maybe that will also work for you.
Sure looks like there's a mime type that isn't properly defined. What version of gnome-vfs is installed? Perhaps a freshen of that rpm? What are your versions of Mozilla and Firefox? Just more or less shooting in the dark...
I mentioned this earlier, but missed it if you gave it a shot...copy your .mozilla folder in your home directory somewhere else and visit the sites you're having issues with. Also, when they crash, are you accessing something with multimedia content...i.e. RealPlayer, QuickTime, Windows Media?
Distribution: SuSE 9.1 Professional, Gentoo, The Jackass! Project

hmm. do you really mean COPY, or do you mean MOVE?
fwiw, i looked in the Home directory, and there isn't a .mozilla folder. maybe this is one of the Suse quirks, but it isn't there. does firefox create a .mozilla folder in the Home directory in Suse 9.1?
