I think it is a known fact that extensions make FF sometime instable.
Since i use the same FF version as you and i do not experience the same
behavior as you i suggest the following to narrow the cause:
* close _ALL_ FF windows
* start a new FF with:
$ firefox -ProfileManager
* create a new profile e.g. s.th. like "test-with-defaults"
* then to use this profile afterwards you use:
$ firefox -P test-with-defaults
Since this is a standard profile that ships with ubuntu and you
experience the same behavior with _that profile_ *then you can blame the
But i do not think this will happen.
Maybe it is also a good advice to update the extensions if new versions
are available (with bugfixes) but rather i suggest to lower the number
of used extensions.
