Which version of firefox? In terminal
Code: Select all
firefox --version

Do you have a 64bit system with gnome-globalmenu?

EDIT:
Have you tried
Code: Select all
firefox -safe-mode

If you don't know you have globalmenu then you don't. You could try to uninstall and then reinstall firefox. As of right now I cannot see what the issue might be.

I suspect you might have bad RAM or a faulty hard drive. At the boot menu run memtest and see what happens...

Is FF crashing on video intensive websites such as Flash? If so, and also with Totem then I suspect you have an incorrect/faulty video card driver for that card. Show us the output to:

inxi -G

~ $ inxi -G
Graphics: Card ATI RS482 [Radeon Xpress 200M] X.Org 1.6.0 Res 1280x800@59.9hz
GLX Renderer Mesa DRI R300 20060815 x86/MMX+/3DNow!+/SSE2 NO-TCL GLX Version 1.3 Mesa 7.4


ive never had any issues with the video card before..and firefox just crashes with any normal site.

I'm having the same problem: when I run firefox it loads up, and sometimes starts opening the previous pages, then crashes. Running firefox in terminal gives me "Segmentation Fault." Same is true for Totem.

When I run Firefox as root ("sudo firefox") then it works. Same with Totem. But that's quite annoying on all sorts of levels! I've tried completely removing firefox, deleting .mozilla from home directory, then reinstalling. Same problem.

When I launch Amarok, that crashes immediately with a signal 11 (SIGSEGV) fault. When I run as root (via terminal) it does start, with various error messages on display.

This is all quite recent, maybe a week or so ago. I have all the updates (levels 1-3) from mintUpdate, and I recently marked all upgrades in Synaptic to give that a try (it upgraded the kernel) but again this hasn't solved anything.

(Mint 7, Gnome)

Help would be appreciated before I start thinking about a fresh install :(
