Please go ahead and submit a new crash report if it crashed again with the latest available package. Thanks in advance for your cooperation and understanding.

Not so easy, because it's not trivial to reproduce (bug #192888) and if I can apport almost always presented a dialog saying not enough memory to analyze the problem which is strange since I have got 1Gbyte of RAM, and more than 3G of free swap. When firefox crashes (noticed when stops refreshing the window content) I see crash file growing in /var/crash/ over 100Mbyte and larger and after some minutes the dialog appears what I have not enough memory. Though I watched memory/swap usage during the action and I don't think I'm out of all VM space so it's strange for me at least ...

Yes this is definitely Pulseaudio server problem, i tested it and FLash crashing stopped example with Youtube videos.
LGB [Gábor Lénárt] information is correct and i found nasty solution.

I removed all Pulseaudio packages by using Synaptic, use search and find pulse, only packages what i left there are these:

so remove all other and do reboot.

But now there is still bug in PulseAudio server what need to be fixed.
