    One thing--I have been guilty of this too--on does it die as in
    crash or die as in freeze? I find that native firefox will freeze on
    some flash heavy sites (this thread's come up on forums from time to
    time.) is one, when one tries to view the
    description of a particular show's listing is another. (The same holds
    for mozilla and epiphany and no doubt any others using gecko).

    They don't crash as in close, leaving a .core file--they simply freeze
    completely, not responding to keyboard or mouse.

    but I have enough so that I can't do this.
