stracing shows surpising involvement of sound, not understood
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.
