Firefox 2.0.3 keeps crashing on my Ubuntu Edgy Eft

Since the lasted automatic update on the 25/03/2007, firefox has been very unstable. Every 20 minutes or so, it crashes with the following message:

"The application 'Gecko' lost its connection to the display :0.0;
most likely the X server was shut down or you killed/destroyed the application."

I am investigating the problem following

The same version of firefox running on Windows XP runs absolutely fine, I am looking forward to reporting to the ubuntu community!!! So far, I have no clue, could it be my installation of ubuntu???

The sad truth was that before this update, firefox was more stable in Windows too ...

I recommend you to delete your profile(~/.mozilla/* more or less) and create again.

If you can, better , purge firefox and reinstall it.

It isn't very common this annoyance but all is possible in this world :)
