It seems that some kind of sound problem crashes Mozilla???

SOLVED (?): In further testing, seems surely to be related to sound
problems.  I had configured Mozilla mail to play a wav file when new
mail arrived. This seems to trigger the segfault and crash. 
Reconfiguring Mozilla mail not to play the sound file seems to
stabilize Mozilla, I have had no crashes since this step.

You should file that upstream at bugzilla.mozilla.org.  Sounds like it
might be an upstream problem.
