Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. Could you please try to obtain a backtrace by following the instructions on [WWW], or upload (as an attachment) the crash report from /var/crash/.

Also, please answer these questions:
Is this crash reproducible? If so, which are the steps that lead to it?
Which flash package do you have installed?
Which Java package do you have installed?
Which Firefox extensions do you have installed?

I realize that you said this happens when you close firefox, but a little more detail with what you already have installed might help.

The crash is probably random, I do not know how to reproduce it yet.

I've installed flash player 10 beta because of Bug #239233 who crashes my gnome and when minimizing the browser, if i've had opened few pages with flash in it.

The Java package is the default from Ubuntu installation. I think that is 5.

Extensions: Firebug 1.2.0a21X ; Firefox Showcase ; Ubuntu Firefox modifications 0.5. They are all installed from "Get Ubuntu extensions".
