Update:
removed firefox and flash via yumex.
removed the ~/.mozilla folder completely and started afresh.
re-installed firefox - i386 version on a x86_64 system as this seem to 
be the safest and it works fine at home.
all appears okay - particularly my web site https://www.ndgonline.net/ndg/
then installed the adobe supplied flash player and it seg faults as it 
goes to render the godaddy logo at the bottom of my page.
remove the flash player and all is well - so it appears that the flash 
player is the problem.......
anyone else have this issue or any experience or insight they can share??
