User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8.0.5) Gecko/20060727 Ubuntu/dapper-security Firefox/1.5.0.5

When looking at pages containing javascript (as long as it is enabled), the browser silently exits.
By the way, really sorry about marking this as Major, as I seem to be the ONLY person experiencing it.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Visit a page containing javascript.
2. Watch FF go suicidal.

Actual Results:  
Firefox quickly exits, and sends an error to the terminal.

Expected Results:  
It should just keep on working...

Here's a terminal output:


dylan@tuxbox:~$ firefox
The program 'Gecko' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)'.
  (Details: serial 114 error_code 8 request_code 146 minor_code 3)
  (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
   that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
   To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
   option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
   backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)
