File uploads seem to be troubled in this build: Sometimes, they'll spin (take forever and never complete, socket closes, still in progress etc), and sometimes they'll cause a SIGSEGV and crash to desktop. 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Attempt to submit a form with a file input

Actual Results:  
Crash to desktop

Expected Results:  
File is uploaded.

Would appreciate guidance in getting you guys a better backtrace.
Same problem experienced. Firefox 3.6.8 crashing to Desktop when clicking on button in web page that should trigger File Browser to select file to import.  When re-starting Firefox, message "Well, this is embarrassing" and option to resume from crash (which would immediately result into new crash); 

System: Firefox 3.6.8 running on Ubuntu 8.04, Kernel Linux 2.6.24-19-generic, UI Gnome 2.22.3 running on Intel Pentium 4 @ 2.4GHz with 1.2Gb RAM. Available disk space 27Gb
