Firefox dying on dialog boxes

It seems that on most dialog boxes, my firefox dies (mozilla packaged, 1.0). For example if I here on LQ press the add live bookmark button, it starts showing the window, loads it partially and then closes the whole app. Here are the errors on the console:
*** loading the extensions datasource

The only major recent update was the GSB 2.2 gnome full install.. Thats most likely the causer, but any more specific ideas?

did a few testings. As root firefox spits out the same errors without the segfault on startup allready, but it works, and is able to show boxes.. hmm.. Ill try a fresh .firefox

another update:
meh, works like a dream with a empty config.. So its gotta be something ive added recently..

moah.. changed my theme back to plastikfox from Saferfox, and voila, I can add bookmarks again, and subscribe to rss feeds.. Damn thats one tricky theme if it causes segfaults.. Too bad, it was pretty nice.. The best ive seen.. ):
