Default Firefox 3.0.6 segfault

I've rarely (if not never) had segfaults with Firefox. But, wouldn't
you know it I set up my father with an up-to-date 8.10 Ubuntu and all
is working fine until this morning when Firefox just dies every time
it tries to start.

I removed the sessionstore.js file out of the way and it allowed
firefox to start. But, it wasn't long before I saw it happen again.

I did capture a quick strace. Think libtotem-gmp-plugin.so is a
likely candidate?

What else should I look for?
