Segfault with Firefox

Greetings, programs! :-)

Reading the the current mailing lists, it seems that firefox is a big
issue "as is", meaning even on the traditional platforms like i386. So I
guess I shouldn't be all that surprised that SPARC64 poses a problem too.

I installed my Firefox one with the packages, once with the ports (after
deinstalling the other one first). In both cases Firefox didn't start but
just gave a segmentation fault. Thunderbird on the other hand, which I
installed beside the browser, works fine - if you count the sluggish
reaction as ok.

Is this a known problem or just an isolated event?
