what version of firefox are you running?
what versions of ubuntu and fedora are you using?
what plugins are installed?
when does it happen?  at any site randomly or easily producible?

just saying it crashes is not enough; need more details

Better forever...
Another option is to wipe your firefox profile directory and check with clean configuration.

seems to me it helped. About deleting forever, for now I have put it to ask before running plugin, to determine how many sites with flash plugin I surf.

You might want to install the FlashBlock Addon in addition or instead.  It keeps Flash from playing until you click on the flash element.  It reduces the amount of wasteful processes running on the background when you visit websites. In a way, it's a little easier than being prompted per site and you really don't need to start all that flash.
