So, have you looked at the core dump with gdb to see where it appears
to be crashing?

Could it be IPv6 related?  Do you have IPv6 in the kernel and enabled?
I do.

You could try adding these options to MOZ_OPTIONS in the Makefile
  --enable-debug[=DBG]    Enable building with developer debug info
  --enable-debug-modules  Enable/disable debug info for specific modules
                          Enable/disable debugger info for specific modules
