Bug Description

Binary package hint: firefox

1. Using 10.04 Lucid (Beta 1)
2. Package is 3.6.3+nobinonly-0ubuntu1
3. Expected to be able to browse the internet.
4. Firefox crashes seemingly whenever the wind is blowing in the wrong direction. No rhyme or reason to when or why it crashes as far as I can see.
