I do not think it is exactly the same -- see below.

After reading the discussion in the PR, I renamed and 
tried again: no crashes with Firefox 2.0.3 or Thunderbird 2.0.0. I do 
run KDE -- I probably should compile Firefox and Thunderbird without the 
gnome dependencies to solve it for me.

The relevant packages seem not to be among the Firefox package 
dependencies, but:

libgnome-2.16.0             <  needs updating (port has 2.18.0)
gnome-vfs-2.16.1            <  needs updating (port has 2.18.1)

I guess I would have to update all gnome packages from 2.16 to 2.18 to 
see if it helps... but since Howard Goldstein rebuild all his ports, he 
can probably confirm that this happens with the current ports.
