I had built firefox-17.0.1,1 on my i386 stable/9 laptop a few days ago,
and it had been working... and then this morning, after my usual daily
updates, it started segfaulting on start-up.

After reviewing which ports I updated this morning:

===>>> The following actions were performed:
        Upgrade of binutils-2.22_3 to binutils-2.23.1
        Upgrade of jpeg-8_3 to jpeg-8_4
        Upgrade of mplayer-skins-1.1.3 to mplayer-skins-1.1.3_1
        Upgrade of png-1.5.12 to png-1.5.13
        Upgrade of tiff-4.0.2_1 to tiff-4.0.3
        Upgrade of ImageMagick- to ImageMagick-
        Upgrade of cups-client-1.5.2_2 to cups-client-1.5.4
        Upgrade of cups-image-1.5.2_1 to cups-image-1.5.4
        Upgrade of netpbm-10.35.86 to netpbm-10.35.87

and noticing that my work desktop (also running firefox-17.0.1,1 on
i386 stable/9, updated yesterday) was OK, I tried rebuilding firefox
("portmaster www/firefox").

Once that was complete, firefox-17.0.1,1 works again for me.
