I should probably also mention that neither browser has ever crashed on me on 
FreeBSD, and I use both extensively. I've only been a FreeBSD user for a few 
months, but I've never had issues with either browser crashing whatsoever. 
I'm also running on a 2GHz Athlon and 512MB RAM. Mozilla tends to be a memory 
hog - maybe it's an issue with memory and swapping?
