maybe there is a reason I can't see but... did you try to install
firefox-dbg? One of the reason why I like so much debian-based distros
is that they have a lot of packages for each software, each one adapted
to one or another person needs. If you need debuging, and you know how
to read the information a debuger returns to you, you can use the -dbg
package, if you do not wont to be bothered with the even light overhead
due to debuging you install normal version.

IIRC is almost standard practice, when someone signals a bug others are
not able to reproduce to ask him/her to install the debug enable version
of the culprit package and attach to his/her report things like stack
backtrace and the like...

I truly fail to understand how this could happen...
