Galeon without a mouse is like lynx with only a mouse.

Have you tried building a new Galeon profile. I have seen this sort
of behaviour, but removing ~/.galeon and maybe some other gtk/gnome
related directories, solved these problems. Remember that your
boomarks also live somewhere in these dirs, so be careful when
sending them to /dev/null.

Plugins can cause crashes, but then Galeon crashes every two
minutes. Once I have solved those issues, a crash is very rare. X
dies on me more often.
