Well, yes, it's the one you have with debuginfo installed (`debuginfo-
install firefox`, 17 packages and 227 MB here, if I'd done it).  Then 
attach to the running firefox with gdb (use `ps -ef | grep firefox` to 
find the real firefox and its pid) with `gdb path/to/firefox the_pid`,
and wait for trouble.

I'd expect that firefox is already able to report its crashes, and you 
have done so, and you just want the information for yourself.
