Default GUI crashes in the last few weeks (caused by iceweasel??)

hi,
in the last couple of weeks i've experianced a few gui crashes, ie
screen blinking for a few seconds until some blue sreen with a
Xorg-something error shows up. it seem to be since an iceweasel & xorg
updates that were made 14/1, and allways seem to happen when the active
window is iceweasel. i also had a couple of times when i managed to
switch windows and the blinking stopped, and i closed iceweasel from
panel, and all was ok afterwards. i've tried to look in some log files
afterwards but i didn't really know what to look for..
so, for next time- where can i find the cause for such a crash?
thx,
alon

Look in /var/log/Xorg.0.log for your current X session or in
/var/log/Xorg.0.log.old for the previous one (in case your full system
freezes or new X session is started).

Jens.
