Hi,

My firefox (Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.9.1.6)
Gecko/20091216 Fedora/3.5.6-1.fc11 Firefox/3.5.6) on Gnome 2.26.3 will
randomly crash, without any errors. /var/log/messages & /var/log/Xorg.0.log
doesn't show anything that caused any errors. And it doesn't matter on which
website(s) I'm busy with, it will just crash.

Does anyone know how to check for a problem?

My PC has:

Intel Pentium(R) Dual-Core E5200 CPU
4GB DDRII Corsair RAM
3x 160GB SATAII HDD
Asus Nvidia 8800GT graphics card.


I have updated to the latest nVidia drivers

[root at Rudi-PC ~]# dmesg  | grep nvidia

P.S. This is on Fedora Core 12, but it's RH based, so I thought maybe
someone on this list might have some insight into the problem?
