Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: firefox-3.0

When running firefox (3.0+nobinonly-0ubuntu0.8.04.1) it won't come up.
On the command line i just get this:

user at laptop:~$ firefox
Segmentation fault

I ran across the wiki entry about bugreporting for firefox, so please find the gdb-output attached.
I already tried reinstalling  all packages including the ones firefox depends on, so I doubt it's a harddisk failure.
Running the ProfileManager segfaults as well - no hope of using a fresh profile. Moving the $HOME/.mozilla dir out of the way to get rid of the extensions I use doesn't help at all.

Unfortunately I'm not sure if this is firefox-specific, because the
latest thunderbird behaves the same :-(

Pls. let me know if you need more information on this issue.

Using Kubuntu 8.04 with latest packages.
