And btw this doesn't happen when I'm in launchpad websit, It happens only if I try to open my yahoo mail account or google page.

launch firefox from a terminal and when it crashes paste all the text here as an update (if any)

Have you tried the mozilla ppa build? It may cure your issues. It seems the current firefox (as garbage as it is) seems to have a lot of issues recently.

Can you help with this problem?
