Well, I ran

sudo force_start=1 /etc/init.d/apport start

as requested, tried to go to jigzone, and got the same results as before 
-- Firefox closed.

However, there is no file in /var/crash.

I didn't know about apport so I Googled it and found this page:


That's the only reason I knew to look in /var/crash. Also, no dialog box 
showed up. All that happened is that Firefox immediately disappeared 
from the screen -- the open window and the buttons on the task bar.

Restarting Firefox allowed me to restore the session to the point before 
attempting to connect to jigzone.
