We have the same problem with our 3 newly installed ubuntu systems, all
running nearly the same configuration as already described above.

For us it looks like this issue is somehow related to the clipboard.

The crash is reproducable when we copy text in any other application
with Ctrl+c. If we then try to click into our bookmarks, firefox
crashes. On my particular system also the left and middle mouse button
let firefox crash.

If you now restart firefox, mark and copy some random text on a site with Ctrl+c, you are able to use firefox. If you dont copy anything in firefox (overwrite clipboard content?), it keeps crashing on bookmark clicks.
Using middlemouse for copy paste doesnt help or affect firefox.

best regards
