Thank you for reporting this to Ubuntu. Have you ever run the browser with sudo (please don't try this)? This is commonly caused by the owner of certain files in the profile to not be the current user. Also, I noticed you are still running Firefox 5.0 beta 5, you might consider upgrading to the release version now in the security and updates repositories

I didn't play with sudo and just made an update but the problem still accurs. Perhaps I'll try to reinstall the browser.

Is there a way I can reinstall it so that I didn't have to install all the extras again?

since I've been using Chromium, my system doesn't crash any more as it used to.
