sorry, maybe I was not clear enough when I wrote: "I even reinstalled 
firefox and created a new system user to check if this was dependend on 
my profile but it was not."

So yes, I started Firefox with 'firefox -safe-mode' and the browser 
still crashes. Using the safe mode basically rules out plugins as a 
source of my problems, right?
