Description of problem:

Current Firefox 40 on Fedora 22 x86_64 crashes quite often (up to multiple times per day) for me. It happens randomly, so no easy steps to reproduce. Just browse the web and eventually firefox will crash..

How reproducible:
Randomly, but often. It has happened many times recently.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Browse the web.
2. ??? 
3. firefox crashes.

Actual results:
Firefox crashes with SIGPIPE.

I also submitted upstream Mozilla bugzilla entry about this same issue:
Comment 2 Pasi Karkkainen 2015-09-27 09:11:26 EDT
Btw this crash seems to be specific to Fedora build of Firefox. When I run the firefox binary provided by Mozilla it's stable - no crashes.
