Firefox has been crashing on me... a lot

I'm running Mozilla Firefox 1.0.4 and it's been crashing fairly often with just regular usage. Is there any reason it would be doing this?

I currently have the theme Phoenity installed, as well as the extensions AdBlock, Forecast fox, CustimizeGoogle, Tabbrowser Preferences, and DownTHEMall! installed in it, but I've had them all installed before with no problems.

Did you have the extensions installed prior to upgrading to 1.04?

I've had problems with crashing after upgrading from 1.0x to 1.04 with outdated versions of extensions being installed prior to upgrading.

To resolve I uninstalled all extensions and reinstalled them. Turns out one of the suspects was an outdated version of Forecast Fox that was attempting to retreive weather information and causing the firefox app to hang. Everything has been running smoothly since I reinstalled the extensions.

It turns out it was likely because of me messing with my apt sources.list file. I think I had some dependencies thrown out of wack or something, because shortly after I made that post half the programs on my install would crash. Anyway, I reinstalled Debain Etch and it worked fine from there.
