Okay, I was using my own custom compiled firefox for eliteness. However my build for my Ubuntu system constantly crashed or simply failed to launch until I would restart X. I removed my install of firefox and tried the official ubuntu and debian packages. Both die as well. Now I know its not my compilation. I've got the latest crap for Xorgy and nvidia-glx drivers. I'm thinking its one of those two causing the crash/notstarting. Ideas on where to proceed, only thing I can do with X is change my resolution ;-) I'm not sure where to start to trace down what the cause is.
