ok thanks guys, the firefox RPM was normal and the system is solid 64bit, it's 
just Firefox that has problems.

In the past crashes could be triggered just by simple UI interaction, 
scrolling or click/drag, etc. Seemed like any time it would use GTK widgets 
it was on thin ice. I run KDE so I wondered if any other KDE users have this 
problem.

But I am running the mozilla.org binary now, so I can get crashreporter to 
work - but it doesn't...

anyway this is not a CentOS issue it seems. But thanks for letting me know.
