Confirmed.

FF 16.0.1 from the mozilla site crashes X on CentOS 5.8 32-bit and
64-bit if the latest NVIDIA drivers are installed (304.51).  If the
older drivers (295.71) are used, it seems to be OK.  It's also OK if
the NVIDIA drivers are not used.  Also seems to be OK on CentOS 6.3.
I haven't tried older revisions of the 304 series driver.
