I don't get a firefox crash, but going to their site in either Chromium or Firefox is crashing xfce4-panel on my system. WTF?

BTW, wow, that's a horrible page.

Edit: could be a font issue. Last error I get before the panel SIGABRTs is (process:865): GLib-CRITICAL **: g_slice_set_config: assertion 'sys_page_size == 0' failed
xfce4-panel: cairo-scaled-font.c:459: _cairo_scaled_glyph_page_destroy: Assertion `!scaled_font->cache_frozen' failed.

This should cover everyone in the stack: <browser> -> gtk2 -> cairo

According to the following forum thread, installing ttf-droid and/or ttf-dejavu solves the crashes:

I also found an upstream report for xfce4-panel:

hmmm, I've already installed ttf-droid and ttf-dejavu. Font should not be the substaintial part of this issue.

Interesting, this bug does not appear on my laptop.

I already had ttf-dejavu installed, installing ttf-droid does keep xfce4-panel from crashing.

I still can't reproduce the original issue.

After stopping profile-sync-daemon, this bug would not show. I guess I've found the cause.

Thanks for the update. I'll go ahead and close this then.
