1. yum install firefox-debuginfo

2. Start firefox

3. Use ps to find its pid

4. ssh into this machine from another host

5. gdb /usr/lib/firefox-3.5/firefox <PID>

6. Wait for firefox to crash

7. Hopefully, gdb will be able to catch the signal

8. Post the backtrace of every thread into Bugzilla
