Ditto, I have seen the same thing 2 or 3 times in the last couple of weeks.
Running:  Firefox/ 
Running:  6.2-PRERELEASE FreeBSD 6.2-PRERELEASE #0: Sun Oct 29 16:41:34 EST 2006
I've been updating ports daily for about a week now, and must admit, I haven't seen seen Firefox crash again.

Also, I noticed that approximately 2 weeks ago (or less, that when saving a file Firefox would do file name completion when saving files using a similar naming convention:
This was made it easy to just increment a file by 1, and save.
This completion would show in the 'Enter name of file to save to ...'
dialog box as a drop down from the 'Name' field, with file name completion as
mentioned above-- but this useful feature sadly no longer seems to work either.

Sure seems like something has changed (e.g., stability and features).
