Just in case others are experiencing this, I've noticed recently that
since Cauldron went to Firefox 13 I've seen frequent crashes, most often
when interacting with Flash.

After getting annoyed enough about it today, I did some digging, got a
(rubbish but mildly usable) backtrace and managed to do some educated

I ended up finding this:

The suggested solution of installing lib64proxy-webkit and removing
lib64proxy-mozjs did the trick. Firefox has been much more stable.

Just thought I'd share this with others should they also be suffering
the same problem.

Depending on how widespread the problem is, we should maybe consider
adding conflicts to firefox package on lib*proxy-mozjs.

All the best
