does anyone else have major probs with Firefox as installed on CentOS5?

ever since the RPM for FF3 came out it has been crashing daily. Usually when I 
use Save As... or Browse... or anything else that brings up the Gnome file 
picker. After the crash I re-start then the file picker works for a while. 

Sometimes it just takes scrolling or click+drag an image or some other random 
action. BANG your'e dead. Very frustrating.

Now today it is just crashing randomly, I am not even touching it. Maybe one 
of my plugins, I know. I guess I will run it with debugger/strace. but does 
anyone else see this?

$ rpm -qa firefox
firefox-3.0.2-3.el5.centos
$ cat /etc/redhat-release
CentOS release 5.2 (Final)
$ rpm -qa kdebase
kdebase-3.5.4-18.el5.centos
