This does not relate to the Firefox crash, but it relates to the problem
with D-BUS not running.  If you run a true GNOME session, then this is
moot as we handle starting a session bus automatically.  If you start
KDE with:

dbus-launch --exit-with-session startkde

You should not have a problem provided you have the system bus running.
