Yes, I wanted to post a ticket, but I really don't know what or where to get 
the info!? Haiku simply hangs, and I've got to reboot. I'm running on a usb 
key, so I don't think any log is saved? Even if there was a log, I wouldn't 
know where to get it. I'll check for failsafe firefox, and shell? Maybe theres 
a "verbatile" firefox loading possible in the shell, so I could capture the 
loading error before hang... Other than that, if you can post a couple of tips 
to get concrete info other than "Haiku hangs" I will certainly post a ticket. I 
just don't want to post something useless for you guys, and as you've probably 
understood, I'm quite new to bug tracking and stuff (especially on haiku).

I was told haiku outputs kdl messages through serial (db9), maybe I could take 
advantage of this. I'll look into it, and also upgrade to latest revision, 
cause you guys are upgrading so fast :)

Hopefully I'll pin-point the problem,

It seems discussing a crashing Firefox here would be reasonable -
since it had been working quite well for some time now and that
shouldn't simply cease to be the case.

The google tech talk I assume you're referring to took place like 18
months ago...

In any case, I ask because it would probably be a recent regression if
Firefox "obviously" crashes - and probably would deserve a bug in Trac
at least: http://dev.haiku-os.org
