I tried some minutes here and it not occurs in the above site. But firefox stills getting killed sometimes a day for not confirmed random reasons. How can I do to generate usefull stacktrace of firefox?

Hi,

please submit the crash report by (double) clicking on it (e.g. using gnome file manager). Otherwise, we won't be able to process it efficiently. The .crash files can be found in the /var/crash directory.

Thanks,

If I double click on the crash report an pop up opens saying thats "firefox-bin closed on non expected way and my computer doesn't have enough memory to analyze the problem automatically".

ps: I have 1gb ram and 2gb swap.

The original message in portuguese(my language):
"Desculpe, o programa "firefox-bin" fechou inesperadamente
Seu computador não possui memória suficiente para analisar automaticamente o problema e enviar um relatório aos desenvolvedores."
