I searched in the mozilla bugzilla for this bug, and it seems to be 

mozilla crashes if a .fon fontfile is in some font directory.  I removed the
.fon files, rebuilt the font list, and now mozilla does not crash anymore
consistently at these sites.  I don't know if there is a "correct" fix for it yet.

One Xft bug in XFree86 was fixed a few days ago that fixed Bug #83354 which was
a Xft related crash in Mozilla.

You had mentioned that you found a potential fix for your problem and/or perhaps
your problem was fixed by the recent Xft patch.  This issue may be resolved.

Yeah, that's the same bug.  Closing since it's filed upstream.
