As already stated i was able to reproduce this with a fresh ~/.mozilla, autogenerated by firefox on startup. Is that what you mean?
only firefox-bin or firefox too?

This bug is about www-client/mozilla-firefox, that is the source package. I didn't test www-client/mozilla-firefox-bin.

So do it, please.
Hum, I tried to test this with mozilla-firefox-bin right now, but /opt/firefox/firefox-bin keeps crashing during startup already. I do not know where to get debugging information for the binary package. Strace shows a SIGSEGV after some call to gettimeofday(), whilst ltrace shows a SIGTRAP after a call to PR_AtomicIncrement somewhere within the first call to nsCOMPtr_base::assign_from_gs_contractid... whatever that means.
I assume that the binary package should work on most systems, so there really might be broken something with my one... in a strange manner... :|
