Thanks to you and Scott for the advice.
I've removed flash and that seems to have fixed the problem. Hasn't
crashed in quite a while. The SO wants flash so I put it in her home
directory .mozilla/plugins. She is not as heavy a tab user. the
strange thing is that she _does_ use tabs, and hasn't seen this
happen. This is very interesting since I see it die quite often.
One very interesting detail is that I have two X sessions up and
running, mine and hers, with mine on set-up using
startx -- :1
I wonder if that has something to do with it...
